High School Surveys
Share |

Across the U.S., there are growing concerns about computer science in high schools. While there are many anecdotal reports about dropping enrollments and state-level teaching certification battles, there is a critical lack of solid information. In an effort to provide research-based information for educators, decision-makers, and researchers, CSTA conducts regular national surveys of high school computer science teachers and disseminates the results of these surveys to the educational community.

Results of the 2015 CSTA National Secondary Computer Science Survey

This document provides the raw results of the 2015 CSTA National Secondary School Computer Science Survey. This survey, examining core questions relating to high school computer science education, was developed by CSTA's Research Committee and was distributed in spring 2015 to 10, 182 high school teachers who defined themselves as: computer science, computer programming, or AP computer science teachers. Notices of the survey were mailed to teachers across the United States and recipient teachers were directed to an online survey instrument. A total of 1,354 teachers responded to the survey (a response rate of 13.3%). Of the original responses, 1,354 were usable.

 

Results from the CSTA-Oracle Academy 2014 U.S. High School CS Survey:
The State of Computer Science in U.S. High Schools: An Administrator's Perspective

As interest in CS continues to rise, so does a considerable need for data to help inform educators, policy makers and others about the efficacy of US computer science education. In this spirit, the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), in collaboration with Oracle Academy, administered an online survey to over 20,000 Public and Private 9–12 secondary school Principals and Vice Principals in the United States between May and September of 2014. The purpose of the survey was to identify computer science education opportunities that are being provided at the high school level, determine how broadly CS is being offered in the US, and determine the different ways CS was being defined in the schools. Surveys were also sent to administrators across the United States using contact information provided by a market data company. A total of 503 people responded to the survey.
