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 by April 30, 11:59 p.m. ET.

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.
