I have done everything I can do to prepare my students for the AP Test, following the code.org curriculum. However, they are asking me questions about the Explore PT that I don’t know how to answer. Most of the questions are regarding acceptable innovations (we’ve reviewed the rubric and the sample tasks with commentary.) For example, is it okay to use anti-virus software for my innovation? I read where it’s okay to do the explore task on software but should he be specific (a particular kind of anti-virus software?)
They also ask questions like who is the publisher of this article? There is no author., etc. I basically have been saying, choose an innovation that you can find a lot of information on because if there is no author, you might not want to use that source. Am I on the right track?
Any list or advice on what are suggested or acceptable innovation topics. Not that I would suggest a topic but if they ask me a question at least I can say with confidence whether or not it is a good one.
Any input is appreciated!
