New Guidance: Information Technology

The ACM CCECC, at the direction of the ACM Education Board, convened a task force of subject matter experts from both academe and industry to define the core IT learning outcomes and the accompanying assessment rubrics which should be common to all associate-degree IT programs.

The report, now finalized and approved, embeds these core IT competencies into an expanded volume of IT curricular guidance which includes the opportunity for faculty at individual institutions to identify course examples and for industry representatives to identify themselves as champions of such competencies. This new ACM IT competency model is now available in the ACM Digital Library under #99914.
