The Wisconsin Academic Standards for Computer Science were developed by a statewide writing committee and submitted to extensive review by the public and the State Superintendent's Review Council.

State Superintendent Tony Evers adopted the standards in June 2017. Wisconsin students benefit from academic standards in computer science and information and technology literacy that help them understand fundamental concepts to further their skills in today’s technological world.

At Rex, we have matched Wisconsin’s vision with our own.

STATE OF WISCONSIN REQUIREMENTS

The Wisconsin vision for Computer Science (CS) standards is shaped by Wisconsin practitioners, experts, and the business community, and is informed by work at the national level and in other states. This vision for K-12 CS standards and the CSTA CS Standards is intended to: 

  1. Introduce the fundamental concepts of CS to all students, beginning at the elementary school level; 
  2. Present CS at the secondary school level in a way that will be both accessible and worthy of a CS credit, or as a graduation credit; 
  3. Offer additional secondary-level CS standards that will allow interested students to study facets of CS in-depth and prepare them for entry into a career or college; and 
  4. Increase the knowledge of CS for all students, especially those from under-represented groups in this field.
