About 17 percent of Washington's class of 2010 earned college credit by passing Advanced Placement exams.

The number of students both taking and passing the exams has been increasing steadily in Washington state. State officials say participation over the past five years has increased in every ethnic group and among low-income students.

AP exams are offered in 36 subjects each May, but the most popular tests in Washington are in English, U.S. history, English literature and calculus.

Washington ranks 17th in the nation for its AP exam passing rate.
