Louisiana Students Earn Most Advanced Placement Credits in State's History

Louisiana high school students who took the Advanced Placement (AP) test in 2013 earned the most college credits in the state's history. Louisiana also had the biggest increase of students taking AP tests in the nation. Governor Bobby Jindal credits these increases to a new law in the state that gives more weight for AP courses taken when determining eligibility for the state's TOPS scholarships.
