The Question of the Day (QOTD) is a daily question created by the CodeHS team to help review concepts for Intro to Computer Science in Javascript, Intro to Computer Science in Python, AP CSA, and AP CSP! The questions run throughout the school year and build from basic concepts covered in the beginning of the course to more advanced concepts as the year progresses.

The daily questions will begin the day after Labor Day on Tuesday, September 5th!

Students can use the left-hand side navigation and look under Resources to find the Question of the Day link. They may also see a top banner inviting them to take the QOTD when they sign in.
