When you or Jerry can provide this data (which is all I was asking for) then I will take a look. Without a full head to head comparison you are still very much in the theoretical and predicting mode. It would seem that your next task would simply be to find an AP class that isn't doing so well and convince them to go IE and then show off their stellar AP scores. Otherwise you will continue to be running rouge like this.
You and I seem to agree on just about everything it takes to be truly successful in these (hard) subjects and the level of thinking required. Where that agreement seems to break down is that all of the successful ones I know can blow away these big exams. There are some outliers. Exceptions to that rule. But not generally.
