Why are students flagged for plagiarism?

When a student's submission in AP Computer Science Principles closely matches that of a peer's submission or an external resource (such as those made available by our endorsed providers or posted on AP Central), they are flagged for plagiarism. Students may collaborate with a partner on the development of their program only. The creation of the Program Video and the Personalized Project Reference must be completed individually, without any collaboration with a partner or anyone else. Students can develop the code segments used in the Personalized Project Reference with a partner or on their own. Written responses are completed independently on test day.
