Students should craft their written responses to remain within the word count limit per the task directions in the AP Computer Science Principles Course and Exam Description (.pdf/2.05MB); the limits are 700 words for the Explore task and 750 words for the Create task. Students may need to revise their responses to provide the most essential information needed to meet each criterion in the rubrics for each performance task. More information regarding these templates is available on the AP Digital Portfolio site.
