Web applications standards

From Computer Science Wiki

These are the PROPOSED standards used in the course for web applications. The standards are framed by a draft version of the K-12 computer science framework. The standards borrow from ideas in IB computer science course, from CSTA standards, the W3 consortium, and from professional web developers. In many cases, the standards are pulled from industry leaders. For example, the databases standards are used (with permission) from Oracle and the PHP programming standards are used (pending permission) from the creator of PHP, Rasmus Lerdorf.

A note

Concepts answer the question: What does a computer scientist need to know? Practices answer the question: How do people do computer science? (source)

Concepts and practices that we will cover in this course:


  • Computing Devices and Systems
  • Networks and Communication
  • Data and Information
  • Programs and Algorithms
  • Impact and Culture


  • Recognizing and representing computational problems
  • Developing abstractions
  • Creating computational artifacts
  • Testing and iteratively refining
  • Fostering an inclusive computing culture
  • Communicating about computing
  • Collaborating with computing

Essential Understandings[edit]

When this course is over, students will have the skills and knowledge to:

  • Understand the foundations of the web
  • Apply a design process to build quality web applications
  • Apply computational thinking to problems, designs and solutions
  • UIX and user interface (advanced students only)

Categories of standards[edit]

These are categories of standards we have in this class.

a group or system of interconnected people or things.

Use an idea, equation, principle, theory or law in relation to a given problem or issue.

Produce a plan, simulation or model.
