Should students skip question 2B on the explore task?


#1

My advice to students has been to complete the question since it is still on the official template, but some are choosing to skip the question. Should students skip question 2B since the latest rubric is not going to score that question?

My understanding is that although prompt 2B is not scored, the answer can be used to prove the artifact was created by the student. I will strongly encourage my students to complete it.

Happy computing,

Do we cite the source (full URL) in response? Or can they also use 2b to answer that question. This has really been a sticking point the last couple of days.

I asked my students to put the references and urls in 2e and number them. In the responses, I asked them to put the reference number. Sample B (linked below) released by the college board follows this format.
