beginning of content:

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/2.05 MB). The total recommended word count for the written response is 750 words. To allow some flexibility, typed responses to all prompts must not exceed 850 words. Once responses reach the word capacity, students will not be able to add more text to any of the boxes. A word count is displayed for each text entry box, and an overall word count is displayed at the top and bottom of the page. For more information, please refer to the AP Digital Portfolio: Teacher User Guide and share the AP Digital Portfolio: Student User Guide with your students.
