How our ECEP Project Utilizes Data

Project Name: ECEP/ Common Metrics Project - Award# 2137834

The Common Metrics Project, offered under the Expanding Computing Education Pathways (ECEP) alliance 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.

Key SageFox Team Members: Alan Peterfreund, Rebecca Zarch, Tyler Clark

External Partners: ECEP, Sarah Dunton (Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center/MIT) Jayce Warner (Gibson Consulting Group), Joshua Childs (University of Texas, Austin) Cameron McCann (University of Texas, Austin)

Work examples:

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.

Our work is centered around the philosophy that data utilization is a bridge which requires common enough definitions, a shared data collection approach, meaningful analysis, visualization that facilitates insights and sharing the evidence to inform state policy and practices.
