CSTA Standards

Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) Standards 2017.

Level 2 (Grades 6-8)

Computing Systems

  • 02 - Design projects that combine hardware and so􀁸ware components to collect and exchange data.
  • 03 - Systematically identify and fix problems with computing devices and their components.

Networks & the Internet

  • 04 - Model the role of protocols in transmitting data across networks and the Internet.

Data and analysis

  • 07 - Represent data using multiple encoding schemes.
  • 08 - Collect data using computational tools and transform the data to make it more useful and reliable.
  • 09 - Refine computational models based on the data they have generated.

Algorithms and programming

  • 11 - Create clearly named variables that represent different data types and perform operations on their values.
  • 13 - Decompose problems and subproblems into parts to facilitate the design, implementation, and review of programs.
  • 17 - Systematically test and refine programs using a range of test cases.
  • 19 - Document programs in order to make them easier to follow, test, and debug.
