K–12 Computer Science Framework

Developed by the Association for Computing Machinery, Code.org, the Computer Science Teachers Association, the Cyber Innovation Center, and the National Math and Science Initiative, the recently published K–12 Computer Science Framework provides a set of core concepts and practices for teaching computer science. The framework writing team was made up of representatives from participating states, school districts, K–12 educators, higher education faculty, and research and nonprofit organizations. Many of the writers were current or former teachers with experience that spanned K–12 and included a variety of subjects outside of computer science. Leading researchers and representatives from organizations in computer science education served as advisors to the writers. Each of the framework’s core concepts is delineated with expectations of what students should know and be able to do at four different grade band endpoints: Grades 2, 5, 8, and 12. The framework provides a narrative describing the progression of each practice, from kindergarten to grade 12. A website provides links to the complete framework, as well as implementation guidance for standards developers, pathways between curriculum and assessment, teacher development, and computer science in early childhood education. In addition, a glossary includes definitions of terms used in the statements in the framework.
