Are students allowed to choose programming topics for the performance task they submit to the College Board that their teachers have discussed in class or used in practice performance tasks?

We advise students not to submit a performance task that was covered in class, as it will be difficult to incorporate completely original ideas and responses to prompts. If students do choose to submit topics covered in class, teachers will need to review the performance task and report plagiarism to the College Board, if found.

For the Create performance task, students must be able to claim that the program code and the written response they are submitting is their own. Students should only include code segments in their written responses that were originally developed by them or in collaboration with their collaborative peer. Students can use code segments that are not originally developed by them as part of their overall program provided they have included appropriate attributions for these code segments.
