CAS Working Groups

The CAS Research Working Group

collaborates towards some ambitious goals regarding Computer Science education in schools. Our aim is to help CAS members, including teachers and academics, work together with regard to research and to help foster links between schools and universities. We have CAS Research page and will have a CAS Universities page with more information including how to get involved, resources and discussions.

CAS #Include

is a group of teachers, academics and professionals passionate about giving all students the encouragement to study Computer Science. We raise awareness of these issues among educators, enabling school staff to access and apply current research. Our resources for more-inclusive lessons include toolkits on diversity and inclusion and free, online Computer Science textbooks for Key Stage 3 and A Level.

The CAS Assessment Working Group

provides clear, informed opinions on current issues concerning assessment of the teaching of Computing. Its work reflects current academic and professional understanding. It represents the opinions of CAS members who are teachers, and to initiate discussion with stakeholders.
