2018 performance task due dates


#1

I’ve been looking all over college board’s website and I am unable to find the dates for the performance tasks. All they seem to give is the test date. Where do I find the information about submitting performance tasks and when they are due?

Here is the infomation about the due dates and exam. https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/courses/ap-computer-science-principles/exam?course=ap-computer-science-principles.
Here is the link to the student guide for the digital portfolio https://secure-media.collegeboard.org/digitalServices/pdf/ap/computer-science-principles-digital-portfolio-student-guide.pdf.

Does anyone know the precise time the performance tasks must be submitted by? I know it’s Monday, April 30th but does that mean 11:59PM ET? I noticed the Art portfolios have to be submitted by 8:00PM ET, but it sounds like AP coordinators are actually responsible for that submission.

I plan hope to have all my students do their final submit in class on the 30th, but if there’s an absence or some other issue it would be helpful to know the exact time deadline.

Hi @sanborn1,

You are correct 11:59ET is correct! Also, last year the website certainly crashed on the 30th so keep that in mind as well. The College Board ended up extending the deadline for that reason, but it certainly caused some panic.

I know a fair amount of this is outside of your control, but if you can, I’d recommend the earlier, the better for submission!

Happy testing season :slight_smile:

Ok I went off of the 11:59 PM, but did not notice the ET. We are Pacific and I had a number of students attempt to submit around 9:30 or 10:00 our time and were not successful. Is there anything I can have them do? They had fantastic submissions.

Also, why is this information so difficult to find? I don’t see the time ANYWHERE on the AP website. Also, it should have a warning thing on the student end when they log in like “remember your PT is due at: …”

@paige.parker, I’m sorry you and your students are having this experience. I will suggest that you contact the College Board 877-274-6474. I have also passed your concern to the code.org curriculum team. Please expect an additional response soon.

Thank you! My vice principal is going to call and find out if there is anything we can do.
