Are you interested in increasing your CS knowledge and knowledge of formative assessments for CS? SRI International, a nonprofit research organization, is partnering with middle school CS teachers across the country on a National Science Foundation-funded project.

Participating teachers will receive professional resources on CS standards, concepts, student challenges, and formative assessments; attend 8-10 hours of professional development sessions; administer custom formative assessments (5-15 minutes each) in their class; analyze student responses using rubrics; and share data and feedback about the tasks with SRI researchers. Teachers can select formative assessments that fit with their current curriculum, and will receive up to $500 for their participation. The study runs throughout the 22-23 school year, and we will work with individual teachers to determine the best schedule for them.  For more information, please contact:
