 5.  Please provide actionable feedback about the organization of the Arizona Computer Science Standards.
Comments: Test

Comments: It's confusing to tell what parts are the standards and what parts are the curriculum to teach. Just include standards and delete the curriculum

Comments: Continue with the breakdown of the areas, expand on them as much as possible.

Comments: It would be helpful to make the standards available in an electronic form that would allow following a standard from Kindergarten through HS

Comments: While there are explanations for why the standards are important, I would imagine other classroom teachers would appreciate examples of what it looks like in class.

 7.  What would you like the working group to consider as they revise the Sixth Grade Computer Science Standards.
Comments: why are there twice as many computer science standards as there were science or social studies standards? These are important but not MORE important than other core areas

Comments: How are we going to prepare, train, and recruit teachers qualified to administer this content?

Comments: none at this time

Comments: " Successful students can implement programming skills using parameters to meet a project’s goal and timeline." is confusing--could be better stated? Last page needs italics for descriptions, and "Explanation:" precedes the descriptions on page 57

Comments: I still think at this point they should be doing more than identifying things related to CS.

 9.  What would you like the working group to consider as they revise the Seventh Grade Computer Science Standards?
Comments: why are there twice as many computer science standards as there were science or social studies standards? These are important but not MORE important than other core areas

Comments: I think this age group should be learning and taking tests on paper but if you are going to insist then have them do it on tablets. Computers are going to be obsolete.

Comments: How are we going to prepare, train, and recruit teachers qualified to administer this content?

Comments: For 7.DA.S.1 will students need to know how to do this manually or can they search for the information conversions online?

Comments: none at this time

Comments: "Successful students can implement programming skills using parameters to meet a project’s goal and timeline." is repeated here and still seems awkward

Comments: Same as previous comments: more actionable standards.

Comments: none at this time

Comments: Intro: By the end of eightH <--h missing, also "programming challenges" - not sure what that means, "implementing programming skills using parameters to meet a project's goal and timeline."???; missing italics and an extra "Explanation:"

Comments: Same as previous comments: more actionable standards.
