Abstract: 

This study sought to compare the peformance of students in the College Board Advanced Placement Program (AP) compared to non-AP students on a number of college outcome measures.  Ten individual AP Exams were examined in this study of students in four entering classes (1998-2001) at the University of Texas at Austin.  The study's results support previous research that AP students performed as well if not better than non-AP students on most college outcome measures.
