Do we make create the program on code.org or is there a different site we should use?

I would do it at home. We don’t know if we will be back and the college board will grade the two tasks with or without school being in session.  They did do away with the multiple choice question part so you will not take a test.

I know that teachers know just about the same information as students do, but I still had a few things in need of clarification.

We did the Explore Task in class, and I still have those in my Google Drive. How will I upload these to my "portfolio" in order to submit to College Board? 

I will give you detailed information this week or next.  The due date has changed to late May.

Is it an option to forward my artifact and written responses to you in order for checking/revision needs?

I am not allowed to look at it or comment on it.

Additionally, many students are confused as to how we will do our Create Task. Is this the same format, or are we supposed to code a program?

You will write an app and answer questions about the app.  I will be getting a template for this from Charlie and I will post it.
The most important thing to do now is work through the code.org lessons.  You will need to use concepts found in the lessons.  I can help with any of the code.org lessons but not the task.

No new grades will be added to the gradebook.  No additional lessons will be entered in the gradebook but the need to be completed to complete the create task.

Any missing grades can get half credit but nothing new will be added.

I don’t expect school to start, hopefully I am wrong.

Due date for the create and explore tasks has changed to late May.

The single most important thing you can do NOW is complete the lessons in code.org.

Your create task will involve writing an app. You will need to complete all the lessons so you will have the skills needed for the create task.

No new grades will go in the gradebook that wasn't in place when you last attended school. Missing grades can get half credit.

Google create task examples, visit other websites about AP principles. There is a lot of info out there. I will put up links this week or next.

Information for AP Students Affected by Coronavirus (COVID-19)

March 20, 2020

As schools and communities navigate the unprecedented challenges posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the health and safety of educators and students are the AP Program’s top priorities. Here’s how we’re supporting schools:

•    We’re providing free remote learning resources.
•    We’re investing in the development of a new at-home testing option.

Through our members across the country, we understand the new time constraints on everyone in the education community. These solutions are meant to be as simple and lightweight as possible for both students and teachers — without creating additional burdens for school leaders during this time.

•    Traditional face-to-face exam administrations will not take place. Students will take a 45-minute online free-response exam at home.
•    Some students may want to take the exam sooner rather than later, while the content is still fresh. Other students may want more time to practice. For each AP subject, there will be 2 different testing dates.

The full exam schedule, specific free-response question types that will be on each AP Exam, and additional testing details will be available by April 3. We'll also unlock any relevant free-response questions in AP Classroom for digital use so students can access all practice questions of the type that will appear on the exam.

About This Year’s AP Exams

Students remain eager to take AP Exams and to have a chance to earn credit and placement. We surveyed 18,000 AP students and 91% indicated they want to complete this important step, urging us not to cancel this opportunity they have been working toward.

We’ll continue to support students with free resources through exam day. And while we encourage students to wait until closer to the test date to decide, any student already registered for an exam can choose to cancel at no charge.

The AP Program will invest heavily over the next month in the following ways:

•    For the 2019–20 exam administration only, students can take a 45-minute online free-response exam at home. Educator-led development committees are currently selecting the exam questions that will be administered.
•    AP curricula are locally developed and we defer to local decisions on how best to help students complete coursework. To be fair to all students, some of whom have lost more instructional time than others, the exam will only include topics and skills most AP teachers and students have already covered in class by early March.
•    Colleges support this solution and are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they have worked this year to earn. For decades, colleges have accepted a shortened AP Exam for college credit when groups of students have experienced emergencies.
•    Students will be able to take these streamlined exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. Taking a photo of handwritten work will also be an option.
•    We recognize that the digital divide could prevent some low-income and rural students from participating. Working with partners, we will invest so that these students have the tools and connectivity they need to review AP content online and take the exam. If your students need mobile tools or connectivity, you can reach out to us directly to let us know.

Test security is a concern.

•    The exam questions are designed and administered in ways that prevent cheating; we use a range of digital security tools and techniques, including plagiarism detection software, to protect the integrity of the exams.
•    Scoring at-home work for an AP Exam is not new to the AP Program. For years the AP Program has received and scored at-home student work as part of the exams for the AP Computer Science Principles and AP Capstone courses.

Instructional Support

Beginning on Wednesday, March 25, students and teachers can attend free, live AP review courses, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. These mobile-friendly classes are:

•    Designed to be used alongside work that may be given by schools.
•    Will be recorded and available on-demand so teachers and students can access them any time.
•    Not dependent on current AP teachers continuing instruction. We know many AP teachers now face challenges that would make that impossible.
•    Will focus on reviewing the skills and concepts from the first 75% of the course. There will also be some supplementary lessons including topics from the final 25% of the course.

Teachers who are providing remote instruction can continue to leverage AP Classroom, which we introduced at the start of the school year.

•    Within AP Classroom, free-response questions that were only available for in-classroom use due to security concerns will now be unlocked.
•    Teachers will be able to assign questions to students digitally.

Here is a one-page overview (.pdf/514KB) of how AP teachers can use the free, daily online practice in AP Classroom to help students prepare for exam day.
AP teachers can access these additional resources to help them get set up with AP Classroom:

•    Foundations. Learn how AP Classroom complements the new AP course and exam descriptions and offers students opportunities for practice and feedback throughout the year.
•    AP Classroom Demo. See a click-through demonstration of AP Classroom, which highlights how to assign, score, and interpret results from Topic Questions, Personal Progress Checks, and teacher-created assignments and quizzes from the AP Question Bank.
•    AP Quick Start Videos. Watch short tutorials on the recent features added to AP Classroom.

Taking the Exam

We surveyed 18,000 AP students to see if they still wanted the opportunity to test this year. Their answer: a resounding yes.

Free resources will be available through exam day to help you get ready. While we encourage you to wait until closer to the test to decide, any student registered for an exam can cancel at no charge.

For the 2019-20 exam administration only:

•    We’re developing secure 45-minute online free-response exams for each course.
•    The exam content will focus on what most schools were able to complete by early March.
•    You’ll be able to take your exams on any device you have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. You’ll also have the option to write your responses by hand and submit a photo.
•    Colleges support this solution and are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they have worked to earn. For decades, colleges have accepted a shortened AP Exam for college credit when groups of students have experienced emergencies.
•    We know that not all students have access to the internet or a device. We’re working on solutions to help students get what they need to show their best work. If you need mobile tools or connectivity or know someone who does, you can reach us directly to let us know.

The exams will be secure. We’re using a variety of digital security tools, including plagiarism detection software.

Free AP Review Classes

Beginning on Wednesday, March 25, you can attend free, live AP review courses, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. These courses:

•    Are optional, mobile-friendly, and can be used alongside any work your teacher may give you.
•    Will be available on-demand, so you can access them any time.
•    Will focus on reviewing the skills and concepts from the first 75% of the course. There will also be some supplementary lessons including topics from the final 25% of the course.

To access the live classes and recordings, visit the AP YouTube channel or find your course schedule below. We’ll be adding more courses soon.
