Can teachers review student submissions before they are sent to the College Board for scoring?

Teachers can review student submissions for the following purposes only:

  • Teachers can review the files that students are submitting to ensure the files are correct or not corrupted for each performance task (i.e., students upload correct files for the Explore performance task and correct files for the Create performance task). Teachers can return these files to the students; and
  • Once students’ submissions have been submitted to the College Board as final through the AP Digital Portfolio, teachers can then provide feedback to students if they are being considered as part of a class grade. Note that classroom grades may differ from the AP score that a student may receive.

Please note: Teachers who find that students have plagiarized by not acknowledging third-party sources should follow the guidelines for flagging the students’ work as plagiarized. Evidence of the plagiarism should also be provided.
