On the chancing tool, is a class a semester or full year

I am trying to complete the chancing tool and it asks for the number of AP classes and HR classes. Do I count by semester or by full year? For example, I took 3 classes per year in AP.

Do I count as 3 classes (full year) year or 6 Classes ( by semester)

So I asked this previously and @JCDenton said essentially each class counts as one regardless of semester or year long course.

For example AP US History is a year long course while AP Macroeconomics is one semester. And if you take both of those you have 2 not 3 semesters.

A class is defined as a credit. If you completed the entire AP class in one year (i.e. took AP Chemistry for two semesters) then it would count as one class. Go by how many credits/classes you took, in this case it would be 3, since they’re full-year classes. If you took a 1/2 year course then it would also count as a class but most APs are full-year.
