Barbara Ericson’s analysis of the 2019 Advanced Placement CS data

Barb spoke at CornellTech’s “To Code and Beyond” workshop on January 10 on her analysis of the Advanced Placement CS data (both A and CS Principles). She’s shared the slides and her analysis at her blog.

As usual, the analyses are fascinating and dismal. It’s amazing to see how few people are really getting access to AP CS.

This year, she did a bunch of intersectional analyses which were eye opening. Here’s a couple of the results that I found surprising. Only 9 states had more than 10 Black Women pass the AP CS A exam. Only 14 states had more than 10 Hispanic Women pass the AP CSA exam. Those aren’t percentages — that’s a raw number of exam-takers who passed. AP CSP numbers are larger, but still disappointing.
