The goals of collecting this data on AP exam scores by discipline was to gauge the individual success on an AP Exam in 2007. Most students view a grade of 3 or higher as a successful grade (grade range {1 (worst), 2, 3, 4, 5(best)}. Of interest was to evaluate the performance for each grade level, type of school, or geographic location.

Standard students generally receive most of their foreign language training in U.S. schools.
