The RPPforCS project connects the teams through virtual meetings (webinars), in-person meetings, and meetings of the R-EWG. Here you will find information about the participating grant teams, project activities, and resources from the project.
Searchable RPP Database and Maps
This database allows you to search through our existing community of projects on a range of characteristics. You can use this resource to find people who are geographically close to you, working on a similar problem of practice, working with a similar student or teacher population, and more!
The first map of the embedded “RPPforCS Projects Map”, "Projects by Research Team" shows the dispersion of project PIs across the country. The second map, "Projects by Implementation Location" demonstrates the distribution of projects by the proposed state of implementation. The “RPPforCS District Maps” insert provides a map of US school districts within which one or more NSF: CSforAll RPPs are operating, as well as tables of demographic data for these districts. All of these maps have a set of demographic data associated with projects and/or locations that can be filtered upon.
At this time these features are only available for viewing on your desktop. Sorry for any inconvenience!
RPP Project Database
The RPPforCS searchable database allows you to search through our existing community of projects on a range of characteristics. You can use this resource to find people who are geographically close to you, working on a similar problem of practice, working with a similar student or teacher population, and more! The database will automatically update itself with your chosen filters shortly after selecting them.
If you are looking for potential BPC partners, then you may find the following filters the most useful:
The “District Population” filters allow you to search for projects by the populations of the districts that they are known to be operating in. Note that these are not necessarily the target population, but may provide insight into the environment that a project is operating in.
The “Urban/Rural Class” filter allows you to search for projects by the US Census designation of projects’ district partners.
The “Keywords” filter allows you to search for projects by key areas of focus, such as pathways programs or PD delivery.
The “State of Implementation” filter allows you to search for projects by state. Only states with at least one project are listed.
START UP SJV
University of California - Merced
This RPP will create a self-sustaining and scalable professional development program to support high school teachers who teach CS by helping teachers improve their own computer programming and CT skills so that they can better teach their students.
College of Saint Scholastica; College of Our Lady of the Elms
This research-practitioner partnership project explores whether computer science through computing education can broaden the high school to college pathway in computing disciplines for those traditionally underrepresented in these fields--female, underrepresented minority, and low-SES students.
University of California-San Diego
This project will leverage an existing RPP formed around student co-research, communities of practice, and networked improvement communities to rectify the lack of student participatory-design and other shortcomings in student pathways using Youth Participatory Action Research methodology.
University of Massachusetts Amherst
The CS for All Springfield Researcher-Practitioner Partnership (RPP) proposes a four-year plan to integrate standards-based computer science and computation thinking (CS/CT) concepts, learning progressions, and practices in core curricula across all Springfield Massachusetts K-5 public schools.
NYCDOE EDC CSforALL RPP
Education Development Center
The Education Development Center (EDC) and the New York City (NYC) Department of Education (NYCDOE) propose a research-practice partnership (RPP) to enhance and study the implementation of Advanced Placement(R) Computer Science Principles (AP CSP) courses in low-performing NYC high schools.
Rutgers University News Brunswick; Rutgers University News Brunswick
Rutgers University proposes a research practice partnership that brings together computer science educators, educational researchers, and industry partners to provide targeted, differentiated professional development and ongoing virtual support to high school computer science teachers and schools.
RPPforCS Project Maps
The first tab, "Projects by Research Team" shows the dispersion of NSF: CSforAll RPPs across the country. By toggling the filters on the right-hand side of the map you can filter the view by which Grade Band a project is targeting as well as the type of curriculum that the projects will be using. Note that points are staggered to allow overlapping projects to be visible.
The second tab, "Impact Area" demonstrates the distribution of NSF: CSforAll RPPs by the proposed state of implementation. As with the first map you can filter down by Grade Band and Curriculum Used. Mousing over or clicking on a state will display all grade bands being targeted by RPPs in that state, all curricula being used by RPPs in that state, and a list of all projects operating in that state.
RPPforCS District Maps
This set of maps details the districts that NSF: CSforAll RPPs are known to be partnered with and the overall demographics of students in those districts. These demographics do not necessarily represent the specific student subgroups (if any) being targeted by NSF: CSforAll RPPs, however. It should also be noted that projects will frequently only work directly with a subset of schools within a district, and a project's presence in a district on this map does not imply that they are working with every school in a given district.
All of these tabs can be filtered by searching for a project's name, by state, or by districts' urban/rural status as defined by the US Census.
The first tab "RPPforCS Continental District Map" displays all known public school districts partnered with one or more NSF: CSforAll RPPs.
The second and third tabs "District Race/Ethnicity Demographics vs. State Demographics" and "District Race/Ethnicity Demographics vs. National Demographics" provide details for each RPP-partnered school district's student demographics compared to their state or national student demographics, respectively. They also provide information on which projects are operating in each district. The "Examine by" drop-down menu in the top right of each tab can be used to select what demographic group to display data for.
The last tab "Other Demographic Information" shows district-level student data for the percentage of students eligible for free/reduced lunch as well as the percentage of those who are English as a second language/limited English proficiency students. Any blank rows indicate that there is currently no data for a given district.
