SPRINGFIELD (AP) -- A new report has found that Illinois high school graduates are scoring slightly above the national average for the Advanced Placement exam.

According to a Advanced Placement Program report released Tuesday, 21 percent of 2013 graduates received an AP exam score high enough for college credit. The national average is 20 percent. Scores of three or more out of five are generally eligible for college credit.

The percentage of Latino students scoring three or higher increased over five years. But the percentage of black students receiving a three or higher is lower and has remained about the same since 2008.
