A recent review found that some high schools in Orange County, Fla., raise the grades of Advanced Placement students based on their performance on AP exams. Officials say they are seeking to make grading more consistent within the district, and a panel has been formed to study possible solutions. While some AP teachers say that raising grades helps provide incentives for students to perform well on the exams, other educators say coursework and the exams are separate.
Should schools change students' grades based on AP exam scores?
