Generation CS: Computer Science Undergraduate Enrollments Surge Since 2006

In 2015-16, CRA conducted a survey to examine enrollment trends and their impact on CS programs. The survey was administered in parallel with CRA’s Taulbee Survey of doctoral-granting and ACM’s NDC Study of non-doctoral programs. The report, “Generation CS: CS Enrollments Surge Since 2006,” is now available at:

A New Framework to Define K-12 Computer Science Education

ACM,, the Computer Science Teachers Association, the Cyber Innovation Center, and the National Math and Science Initiative have launched a framework that identifies key K-12 computer science concepts and practices educators should expect students exiting grades 2, 5, 8, and 12 to know. The framework is intended to inform the development of standards, curriculum, and computer science pathways, and to help school systems build capacity for teaching computer science.

ACM Joint Task Force on Cybersecurity Education

The ACM Joint Task Force on Cybersecurity Education (JTF) was launched in September 2015 with the purpose of developing comprehensive curricular guidance in cybersecurity education that will support future program development and associated educational efforts. The JTF is a collaboration between major international computing societies: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), IEEE Computer Society (IEEE CS), Association for Information Systems Special Interest Group on Security (AIS SIGSEC), and International Federation for Information Processing Technical Committee on Information Security Education (IFIP WG 11.8). The JTF grew out of the foundational efforts of the Cyber Education Project (CEP). Download the latest draft report here.

Curricula Recommendations

ACM works with leading professional and scientific computing societies to develop curriculum recommendations for the rapidly changing landscape of computer technology. As the computing field continues to evolve, and new computing-related disciplines emerge, existing curriculum reports are updated, and additional reports for new computing disciplines drafted.
