Shutting the Door?: Socioeconomic Disparities, Advanced Placement, and College Enrollment
The objective of this study was to examine the relationship among Advanced Placement (AP) access, AP coursetaking, AP exam-taking and enrollment in postsecondary education. Socioeconomic disparities persist in AP coursetaking and exam-taking while lower-SES students continue to enroll in college at lower rates than their higher-SES peers. Using logistic regression with data from the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 (NELS:88), I analyze students' AP participation and transition to postsecondary education. Results indicate that AP access, AP coursetaking, and AP exam-taking patterns cannot account for any significant share of the college enrollment gap between students from lower socioeconomic and higher socioeconomic backgrounds.
