Project Name: ECEP/ Common Metrics Project - Award# 2137834
The Common Metrics Project, offered under the Expanding Computing Education Pathways (ECEP) alliance https://ecepalliance.org/ works with cohorts of 6-7 states at a time to explore how data from the state department of education can be used in support of the state’s broadening participation in computing goals.

This collection of papers argues for the need for high quality, sustainable data to inform policy and practices around broadening participation in computing efforts. These efforts must be state-owned to ensure that the data accurately reflects the priorities of the vested partners in the state.
