Durham Tech's English and Communications faculty are curious about how other community colleges use Advanced Placement test scores and International Baccalaureate test scores. If your school gives credit for certain AP or IB scores, what are the cut-off scores and for what courses are students given credit? Or do you use these scores for placement purposes only? Thanks in advance for your feedback.

From Forsyth Tech Catalog, 2011-12:

Advanced Placement (AP)

Secondary school students enrolled in advanced placement (AP) courses may receive college credit upon completion of the courses with a score of 3 or higher and forwarding the results to the Admissions Office for evaluation.

AP English-Lang. & Comp. (score 3 or better) ENG 111 Expository Writing

AP English-Comp. & Lit. (score 3 or better) ENG 112 Argument-Based Research
-------------------------------------------------------
International Baccalaureate Program

Secondary students enrolled in International Baccalaureate Courses (IB) may receive college credit upon completion of the higher level courses and receipt of the necessary score 5, 6 or 7. Test results and transcript need to be submitted to the Admissions Office for evaluation.

This is all the information I have now. I may be able to find more next week.
