The core curriculum common to all computer science undergraduate programs is presented in terms of elementary level topics and(More)
In the fall of 1998, the ACM Education Board and the Educational Activities Board of the IEEE Computer Society appointed representatives to a joint task force to prepare Computing Curricula 2001 (CC2001), the next installment in a series of reports on the undergraduate computer science curriculum that began in 1968 and was then updated in 1978 and 1991.(More)
A bibliography of approximately two hundred references in computer science education appearing in the literature since the publication of &#8220;Curriculum '68&#8221; is presented. The bibliography itself is preceded by brief descriptive materials organizing the references into the categories of survey reports, activities of professional organizations,(More)
The ACM Committee on Curriculum in Computer Science has spent two years investigating master's degree programs in Computer Science. This report contains the conclusions of that effort. Recommendations are made concerning the form, entrance requirements, possible courses, staffing levels, intent, library resources, and computing resources required for an(More)
Although professional accreditation has existed well over a century, the accreditation of computing programs is a relatively new experience. This paper highlights some of the important aspects of computing accreditation, particularly from the perspective of CSAB. In essence, this narrative presents a history of the organization as it celebrates its(More)
One of many ongoing programs supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) is Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU). This is because there is widespread belief that active research experience is one of the most effective ways of attracting undergraduates into careers in mathematics, science, and engineering. NSF is particularly interested in(More)
Over the past three years, the ACM Elementary and Secondary Schools Subcommittee has been looking into the question of what sort of computer education today's elementary and high school teachers need. This article highlights its key recommendations. The advent of inexpensive microcomputers is bringing computing to precollege education. The once(More)
