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.
