AP® CS A

Choose from 3 different AP® CS A curriculum on Codio to find the right fit for you!

Codio's Open-Source
AP® Sequenced Content

Already comfortable with AP® CS A? Our curriculum follows the pacing and sequencing of the AP® CS A Curriculum framework and is based on our interactive Introduction to CS content used by hundreds of college students a year.

Codio's native resource encourages students to construct knowledge through coding instead of more passive instructional methods. A code editor accompanies each page so students can see how the computer responds to code.

Students receive immediate, rich feedback, including an explanation with the complete solution. All questions are auto-graded, giving both you and your students a sense of their understanding.

Codio's native resource meets students where they are. We present content in smaller units that are more manageable for students. The same vocabulary and concepts are covered, but in a more approachable way — by stating things as plainly as possible, and, when appropriate, using images, tables, or lists.

This content is not a one-size-fits-all solution.  Natural breakpoints occur in the curriculum where you can make the changes. Using Codio’s excellent content authoring tools, you can author new material. This modular approach gives you the flexibility to design the learner experience best for your students.

"With the current hybrid schedule in place at Bay Path, we have found it extremely useful to be able to log into a student’s project at any time to view what they are working on and provide appropriate feedback."
