OverviewComputing innovations impact our lives in ways that require considerable study and reflection for us tofully understand them. In this Performance Task, you will explore a computing innovation of yourchoice. Your close examination of this computing innovation will deepen your understanding ofcomputer science principles.Please note that you are expected to complete the task independently. You are required to submit: ? A Computational Artifact ? Written Responses to given promptsGeneral RequirementsThis performance task requires you to select and investigate a computational innovation that: ? Has or has had the potential to have significant beneficial and harmful effects on society,economy, or culture. ? Consumes, produces, and/or transforms data. ? Raises at least one data storage concern, data privacy concern, or data security concern.You are also required to: ? Investigate your computing innovation using a variety of sources (e.g. print, online, expertinterviews). ? Cite at least three sources that helped you create your computational artifact and/or formulateyour written responses. ?? At least two of the sources must be available online or in print; your third source maybe either online, in print, or a personal interview with an expert on the computinginnovation. ?? At least two of the sources must have been created after May, 2015.Effective Fall 2015 through Spring 2017-College Board Page 2 of 3 ? Produce a computational artifact that illustrates, represents or explains the computinginnovation s intended purpose, its function, or its effect. Many tools to create artifacts weredemonstrated in your recitation. ? Provide written responses to questions about your computational artifact and computinginnovation.Submission Requirements1. Computational ArtifactYour computational artifact must provide an illustration, representation, or explanation of thecomputing innovation s intended purpose, its function or its effect. The computational artifact mustnot simply repeat the information supplied in the written responses and should be primarily nontextual. Submit a video, audio, or PDF file. Use computing tools and techniques to create one originalcomputational artifact (a visualization, graphic, video, or audio recording). Acceptable multimedia filetypes include .mp3, .mp4, .wmv, .avi, .mov, .wav, .aif, or .pdf format. PDFs must not exceed 3 pagesin length. Video or audio files must not exceed 1 minute in length and must not exceed 30MB in size.2. Written ResponsesSubmit one PDF document in which you respond directly to each prompt. Clearly label your responses2a 2e in order. Your responses must provide evidence of the extensive knowledge you havedeveloped about your chosen computing innovation and its impact(s). Write your responses so theywould be understandable to someone who is not familiar with the computing innovation. Includecitations, as applicable, within your written responses. Your response to all prompts combined shouldnot exceed 700 words.This is what a one hundred word essay looks like. This is what a one hundred word essaylooks like.

Name the computing innovation that is represented by your computational artifact. ? Describe the computing innovation s intended purpose and function. ? Describe how your computational artifact illustrates, represents or explains the computinginnovation s intended purpose, its function or its effect.(Approximately 100 words)2b. Describe your development process, explicitly identifying the computing tools and techniques youused to create your artifact. Your description must be detailed enough so that a person unfamiliar withthose tools and techniques will understand your process. (Approximately 100 words)2c. Explain at least one beneficial effect and at least one harmful effect the computing innovation hashad, or has the potential to have, on society, economy, or culture. (Approximately 250 words)Effective Fall 2015 through Spring 2017-College Board Page 3 of 32d. Using specific details, describe: ? The data your innovation uses. ? How the innovation consumes (as input), produces (as output), and/or transforms data. ? At least one data storage concern, data privacy concern, or data security concern directlyrelated to the computing innovation.(Approximately 250 words)2e. Provide a list of at least three online or print sources used to create your computational artifactand/or support your responses to the prompts provided in this performance task. ? At least two of the sources must have been created after the end of the previous academicyear. ? For each online source, include the permanent URL. Identify the author, title, source, the dateyou retrieved the source, and, if possible, the date the reference was written or posted. ? For each print source, include the author, title of excerpt/article and magazine or book, pagenumber(s), publisher, and date of publication. ? If you include an interview source, include the name of the person you interviewed, the dateon which the interview occurred, and the person s position in the field. ? Include citations for the sources you used, and number each source accordingly. ? Each source must be relevant, credible, and easily accessed.
