Computer Science proper qualification
By taking the Computer Science for Educators course, you meet requirements for DESE’s “Computer Science proper qualification" in Missouri.
Computer Science for Educators aligns with the Computer Science for Educator national standards and examines the practices and concepts central to computer science education at the secondary level. The course provides an introduction to computing systems, networks and the internet, data analysis, algorithms, programming, and the impacts of computing. The course also integrates instructional strategies, computational thinking practices and the big ideas included in AP Computer Science Principles Curriculum Framework.
The program culminates in a web-based portfolio in which you will demonstrate mastery of the program competencies. The portfolio serves as the comprehensive exam at the end of the program of study. There is a course (IS_LT 7378) to facilitate your portfolio development.
As a SISLT student, you have the opportunity to earn graduate credits and valuable experience in an internship. As an intern, students sign up for IS_LT 9480 and earn 1 credit hour for every 45 work hours they complete.
