The AP Computer Science Principles Assessment consists of two parts: a through-course assessment and the end-of-course AP Exam.
Through-Course Assessment: Two performance tasks make up the through-course assessment. The first task requires students to identify a computing innovation, explore its impact, and create a related computational artifact. The second task focuses on the collaborative and iterative process of programming. For the through-course assessment, students will upload digital artifacts, program code, and written responses via a Web-based digital application.
