New ACM Computer Science Transfer Guidance

After two years of intense curriculum development effort, the ACM CCECC has published Computer Science Curricular Guidance for Associate-Degree Transfer Programs with Infused Cybersecurity, known as CSTransfer2017. Based on ACM's Computer Science Curricula 2013 (CS2013) for undergraduate 4-year degree programs in computer science, CSTransfer2017 was specially designed to aid in the smooth transfer from associate degrees to baccalaureate degrees.

The curriculum contains 17 of CS2013’s 18 knowledge areas, and a variety of knowledge units appropriate in the first two years of a computer science degree. The guidance comprises over 200 learning outcomes, 64 of which are infused with cybersecurity, along with a three-tiered assessment rubric using measurable verbs from Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy.
