Arkansas students have shown continued improvement in scores on Advanced Placement exams.

The College Board reports that 4,390 of Arkansas' 27,492 graduates in 2013 — 16 percent — scored a 3, 4 or 5. A score of 3 or higher is generally accepted for college credit. The College Board's report says 12,670 Arkansas students took an AP exam during high school.

The exams cover various subjects in math and science; English, history and social science; and arts and world languages.

The 16 percent is up from 15.1 percent in 2012 and is an 11-percent gain over the 5.5 percent who achieved the score in 2003, when the College Board began reporting the scores.

The College Board is a not-for-profit organization created to expand access to higher education.
