What is a performance task?

The AP Computer Science Principles Create performance task is part of the AP Exam. Students will be provided at least 9 hours in class to complete the performance task. The Create performance task focuses on the creation of a computer program and students will develop a Personalized Project Reference that contains their computer code. On the end-of-course exam, students will respond to two questions related to the code contained in their Personalized Project Reference. The two questions include four distinct prompts: Written Response 1, Written Response 2(a), Written Response 2(b), and Written Response 2(c). Students will have access to their Personalized Project Reference while responding to these prompts. The specific prompts will vary across the different versions of the exam.
