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.
