All student audio responses (oral free-response tasks in AP French, German, Italian, and Spanish Language and Culture, and sight-singing free-response tasks in AP Music Theory) must be submitted online through the Digital Audio Submission (DAS) portal.
What Is DAS?
The DAS portal is a website that schools will use to upload and submit students' recorded responses. The DAS portal is used only for submitting files to the AP Program. It is not a recording method.
The DAS portal works like this:
- In April, AP coordinators at schools that ordered AP French, German, Italian, or Spanish Language and Culture Exams or AP Music Theory Exams receive an email with DAS portal access information.
- Each AP coordinator and school staff member needing access to the DAS portal must have their own account. After creating an account, the AP coordinator receives access information to share with any school staff who will help with uploading and submitting students' recorded responses. (Note: Because AP French, German, Italian, and Spanish Language and Culture teachers and AP Music Theory teachers cannot have any access to student recordings, these teachers are not permitted to have DAS portal accounts or access to the DAS portal.)
- During the exam, students record their responses using digital recording technology. Recorded responses are saved and named following the AP Exam Instructions.
- After the exam, school staff ensure that all student response files are accessible on a computer. School staff log in to the DAS portal from a computer with internet access, select the exam name in the portal, upload each student's recorded response file, and submit all files to the AP Program for scoring.
The 2024 version of the Digital Audio Submission Help document will be available in spring 2024.
Deadline to Submit Responses
Upload and submit files as soon as possible—no later than the close of the next business day after your school’s last scheduled exam of a particular AP Exam administration (i.e., regular or late). Submitting files after this point could result in score delays.
