Review the revised K-12 Computer Science (CS) Standards

The Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) revised K-12 Computer Science (CS) Standards is now available for review. This is not to be confused with the CS Education Framework (on which these standards build). The committee is now looking for interested people to review them. Below is more information with direct links to sections of the standards by grade level so that people can focus in on their particular areas of specialty. Please help make these the best they can be!

The public review period for the revised K-12 Computer Science (CS) Standards is now open! In revising the K-12 CS Standards toward a more final form, the taskforce took specific steps to closely align its work with that of the K-12 CS Framework.  This alignment will strengthen the value of both resources as tools to communicate the CS concepts and practices critical to student educational experiences today. The Computer Science Teachers Association invites teachers, curriculum supervisors, administrators, business leaders, the broad education and business communities to review the standards and offer feedback.

Below are the links which will lead you to the Standards specific to various grade levels. The public review process is now open and ends Wednesday, February 15 at 11:59 PM PST.

Level 1A – Grade Levels K-2

Level 1B – Grade Levels 3-5

Level 2 – Grade Levels 6-8

Level 3A – Grade Levels 9-10

Level 3B – Grade Level 11-12

All feedback is greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

CSTA Standards Revision Task Force

I finally got around to taking a close look at these. OMG! Just to teach the 9-10 standards would take more that 4 semesters. And the background required by a teacher just is not realistic. From programming to networks to logic gates. Considering many of the new CS teachers are business teachers or just willing bodies a lot of work would be needed to implement this.
