The CAPE Framework is Published in Communications of the ACM

Thursday, February 25, 2021

Dr. Carol Fletcher, Principal Investigator of ECEP, and Dr. Jayce Warner, a member of the ECEP Alliance in Texas, collaboratively authored an article published in the February issue of Communications of the ACM. In the piece, titled “CAPE: A Framework for Assessing Equity throughout the Computer Science Education Ecosystem”, they explore the different levels of the CAPE framework and how the framework as a whole can be used as a tool to address CS education inequality with an ecosystem-level approach. The framework addresses four key components of CS education: Capacity for, Access to, Participation in, and Experience of equitable CS education (CAPE).
