Eight States Have Fewer Than 10 Girls Take AP Computer Science Exam; two states have none! - Richard Chang, THE Journal

More girls are taking the annual AP computer science exam, but boys still outnumber girls when it comes to taking the test. In fact, fewer than 10 girls took the May 2016 exam in eight states, and not a single female took the test in Mississippi and Montana. These are some of the findings of a state-by-state analysis of newly released data from the College Board by Barbara Ericson, the director of computing outreach and senior research scientist at the College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology. https://thejournal.com/articles/2016/11/29/eight-states-have-fewer-than-10-girls-take-ap-computer-science-exam.aspx
