In AP Seminar, you will be assessed using a combination of a team project and presentation, an individual written essay and presentation, and an end-of-course exam. These three components will be used to calculate a final AP score (using the 1-5 scale) for AP Seminar. You must submit the team project and presentation and the individual research-based essay and presentation performance tasks, and your presentations must be scored by your teacher, no later than May 2, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. ET. See your AP Seminar teacher for specific deadlines. Note: AP Seminar is only available to students whose school is participating in the AP Capstone program.
