A new report says Nebraska's high school seniors are trailing students in other states when it comes to scoring well on Advanced Placement exams.

A College Board report released Tuesday says nearly 10 percent of Nebraska's high school seniors scored a 3 or higher on an AP exam last year. The exams give high school students a way to earn college credit. Many colleges and universities require at least a 3 before they award credit.

Nationally, 20 percent of seniors scored at least a 3 on an AP exam last year.

The report says the percentage of Nebraska students who earned a 3 or higher increased since 2003, when only 3.5 percent achieved that score.

A Nebraska Department of Education spokeswoman says state officials are reviewing the report.
