National Governors Association AP Pilot Project

In 2005, the National Governors Association funded a six state initiative at 51 rural and urban high schools to increase minority and low-income participation in Advanced Placement classes. The project spent considerable effort in training teachers to become effective at the AP level. The NGA last week released their report on the project.

While not specific to AP Psychology, the report contains a number of points AP Psychology teachers, especially those looking to expand their programs, might be interested in.

The information on the report can be found at the National Governors Association Education Division website at or you can go to for a PDF version of the full report.
