Why are these changes being announced now?

The updated course framework and exam have been in development since the APA’s recommendations were released. The AP Psychology Development Committee’s top priorities were ensuring that key stakeholder groups could provide input and that AP Psychology is strongly aligned with expectations from the discipline and college and university practices.

We recognize these revisions are being announced relatively close to the start of the 2024-25 academic year, and we will provide ample resources to assist teachers as they prepare for the revised course and exam.
