APRIL 13, 1983

  • Interest in Advanced Placement courses continues to rise. When the College Board launched the program in 1955, 1,229 students from 104 schools took AP examinations. Next month, more than 140,000 high school students from 5,525 of the nation’s 23,000 secondary schools are expected to take the exams.
  • After losing a five-year federal grant to conduct the National Assessment of Educational Progress, the Education Commission of the States expects to scale back its operations. By fall 1983, the Denver-based organization projects an annual budget of $3.5 million and a staff of 55—down from $6.5 million and 117 employees as of the beginning of the year.
