Computer science education landscape reports are a foundational tool in ECEP’s 5-Stage Model for state change. Landscape reports help any stakeholder committed to computer science education advocacy and policy reform to understand the state of computer science education at a state level. Observing the impact created when state teams develop a landscape report, the ECEP Alliance published the Landscape Report Toolkit.
This toolkit will help your CS education advocacy group:
advance state level Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC) strategies which lead to sustainable changes;
highlight data that grounds BPC strategy and leads to action;
center the role of data in equity-explicit CS education advocacy and policy efforts.
Written as a toolkit, complete with process notes, guiding questions, and templates, this publication is designed to get your state team started on researching and writing your own landscape report.
If your state team is considering writing a report, or if you have an existing report that you’d like to update or do a better job at disseminating, please reach out to us. We are offering coaching to both ECEP and non-ECEP states.
