Using a Research-Practitioner Partnership approach to developing a shared evaluation and research agenda for CSforALL: RPPforCS is a National Science Foundation funded project.
The four-year project will:
Develop a Connected Community of Practice.
Develop & manage a participant-driven, multi-site research agenda.
Convene a Researcher-Evaluator Working Group (R-EWG) to develop a process for advancing the shared-research agenda.
Collect qualitative and quantitative data about RPPforCS projects’ implementation and common impact data.
Provide an infrastructure for dissemination of project work.
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.
Welcome Cohort 4!
The latest group of CSforAll: RPPs has been approved by the NSF, and you can find a list of those partnerships as of September 11th, 2020, here.

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.
Building Capacity in CS Education and Student Near Peer Classroom Mentorship
Building Capacity in Computer Science Education and Student Near Peer Classroom Mentorship is an RPP collaboration that aims to increase the number of high school computer science teachers by designing, evaluating, and iterating on a professional development model that uses culturally relevant pedagogy and integration into mathematics classrooms.
Stacy Megan Che
Clemson University is broadening participation in computing in South Carolina by preparing computer science (CS) teachers to effectively use culturally responsive, inclusive pedagogies. This project will do so in part by developing an active RPP community of high school CS teachers and researchers.
An RPP focused on creating equitable CS opportunities for elementary students
The project will create curriculum units that incorporate science, social studies, and CS content and activities for preK-8 students. The module's design will be based on culturally-responsive pedagogy and Universal Design for Learning to address the needs of learners with disabilities and African-American and Hispanic youth.
The University of California Los Angeles, in collaboration with the University of Oregon, is working to assure that equity remains central to the growing Exploring Computer Science (ECS) program and larger CSforAll movement as school districts work to get CS teachers and curricula in place while scaling and sustaining the current ECS program.
The Computer Science for All movement focuses on providing all students, including those with special needs, with computational thinking and computer science learning opportunities. This project is a Researcher Practitioner Partnership (RPP) between Braintree Public Schools (BPS) and EdGE at TERC.
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.
Using the Project Maps
The first map, "Projects by Research Team" shows the dispersion of project PIs 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.
The second tab, "Projects by Implementation Location" demonstrates the distribution of projects by the proposed state of implementation. As with the first map you can filter down by Grade Band and Curriculum Used. If you click on a given state a list of all the projects planning to implement within that state will appear in the column on the left-hand side of the map.
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.
