AP Classroom

Whether you’re teaching in person or online, these free, flexible online resources can keep your class on pace throughout the year.

AP Classroom

Sign in to AP Classroom and explore these resources:

AP Daily videos are short, searchable instructional segments you can:

  • assign to students before or after class to maximize time for discussion.
  • assign alongside topic questions to address misunderstandings.
  • encourage students to take advantage of on their own, on mobile devices or computers.
  • track to see which students are watching each video in each class. 

Topic questions are formative questions to check student understanding as you teach. Assign topic questions to reveal student misunderstandings and target your lessons.

Progress checks help you gauge student knowledge and skills for each unit through:

  • multiple-choice questions with rationales explaining correct and incorrect answers, and
  • free-response questions with scoring guides to help you evaluate student work.

My Reports highlights progress for every student and class across AP units.

The question bank is a searchable database of real AP questions. You can:

  • find topic questions and practice exam questions, indexed by content and skills.
  • search for any question, passage, or stimulus by text or keyword.
  • create custom quizzes that can be assigned online or on paper.
