Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine the status of Advanced Placement English in North Carolina. A questionnaire was prepared and distributed to the Advanced Placement English teachers in the 146 high schools in North Carolina in which the examination was given in May, 1986. Chapter I explained the major concepts, limitations, and definitions dealt with by the study. The literature related to the Advanced Placement Program was examined in Chapter II. Special emphasis was given to the content of the Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition Examination and the Advanced Placement English Language and Composition Examination. The focus of Chapter III was the dissemination and use of the questionnaire. The 18 concerns of the questionnaire dealt with personnel matters, curricular concerns, the relationship of the Advanced Placement Program to academically gifted programs, the selection of students, and general needs of Advanced Placement English teachers.
