Computer Science: Principles is a new course under development that seeks to broaden participation in computing and computer science. Development is being led by a team of computer science educators organized by the College Board and the National Science Foundation. Pilots are ongoing at the high school and college levels. Advanced Placement credit is not currently offered for this course-- present efforts in CS Principles are part of the requisite process to make it an AP course. The test will debut in May 2016 or later.
This project has completed an attestation process, gaining the support of over 80 colleges and universities! To learn more about the schools that have publicly attested to the CS Principles course, or to better understand the attestation, check out the list of supporting schools.
