2022-23 Guidance for Artificial Intelligence Tools and Other Services

Like educators across the country, AP teachers are confronting the implications of ChatGPT and other similar tools. 

Students are categorically prohibited from using any and all Artificial Intelligence tools (e.g. ChatGPT or DALL-E) or essay writing services (e.g. Chegg or Course Hero) to guide, brainstorm, draft, or create student work related to any AP assessment, including written projects and performance tasks. The AP Program reserves the right to validate student work submitted for AP African American Studies, AP Art and Design, AP Computer Science Principles, AP Research, and AP Seminar with plagiarism detection tools and other investigative efforts to identify non-student generated work. Any use of Artificial Intelligence tools or essay writing services will be considered an exam violation and may result in the cancellation of a student’s AP score(s).  

Exam violations and plagiarism concerns should be reported to College Board via the AP Digital Portfolio through May 16. After this date, please report online at forms.collegeboard.org/reportcheating.
