Submit AP Computer Science Principles Work in the AP Digital Portfolio

Thirty percent of your final AP Exam score in this course comes from your score on the Create through-course performance task. For this task, you’ll develop a computer program, record a video of your program running, and write answers to prompts that ask you to analyze your work.

You’ll submit all three of these components to College Board through the AP Digital Portfolio. Be sure to submit them as final by no later than April 30 11:59 p.m. ET so they can be scored.
