Yes, students are required to use the AP Digital Portfolio to take the AP Exam and receive an AP score. The Create Performance Task makes up 30% of the overall course grade. If students want their performance task to be scored, they must submit the performance task as final in the AP Digital Portfolio before the May submission deadline at 11:59 p.m. EDT. Teachers should check the AP Exam Schedule for the current year's submission deadline.
We highly recommend that students submit their performance task in addition to taking the end-of-course exam. Students must take an end-of-course exam to receive an AP score.
