After you take an AP Exam, we send your score report to the college or university that you designated on your answer sheet. Your score report is cumulative and includes scores for all the AP Exams you have ever taken, unless you requested that one or more scores be withheld from a college or canceled. When you go online you will be able to see your entire score report and score–send history. If you wish to send additional score reports to colleges, universities and scholarship programs you can do so online for a fee. Learn more about sending your scores to colleges and universities.
AP Seminar students are evaluated both on work they do during the school year and on an end-of-course exam. The work during the school year consists of two "through-course" tasks: a team project and an individual project. The team project includes an Individual Research Report and a Team Multimedia Presentation. The individual project is developed based on several source documents made available to students in January, and consists of a Written Argument, a Multimedia Presentation, and an Oral Defense. The end-of-course exam has two parts: in the first, students read a single source document and respond to three questions about its content; in the second, students read four source documents, identify a thematic connection among them, and develop their own argument based on that connection. The end-of-course exam does not have a multiple-choice section. A student’s final score is derived from the scores of both through-course tasks and the end-of-course exam and is reported on the same 5-point scale as all other AP courses. The team project contributes 20 percent of the score; the individual project contributes 35 percent of the score; and the end-of-course exam contributes 45 percent of the score.
