Notes: This nominee would be a good choice because they have shown a huge amount of dedication to this site from the moment we got to a private beta and presumably before. From writing template emails to send to promote the site (and sending at least 20) to asking and answering the most questions of anyone on this site, Ben I. has shown dedication to this ...

Notes: Peter would be a good choice because he has been active in the community, working to build it using Twitter. He's been active on the main site, and on Meta, asking and answering questions. His community views seem to be well centered and level-headed. He doesn't force his opinions on others, and defers to the needs of the community. He will be good ...

Notes: Hi Everyone! I've decided to self-nominate because I think that I'd do a good job of cleaning up low quality content, promoting and advocating for the site, and still being an active user in terms of Q&A. I have experience in moderating content on Stack Overflow with 334 reviews in the triage queue. I love to help new users get acclimated to the ...

After some reflection I have decided to volunteer for a position as Moderator Pro Tempore for Computer Science Educators. I recognize that with the time gap between my instructional experiences and the present, that many of my methods are now considered "outdated." As such I envision my level of activity on this site will remain light. Though under the ...

A hearty welcome and congratulations to our new moderators. May they still enjoy the site as much as before. If things get too far out of hand, you can always put out a few fires with this.

Notes: I'm self nominating. I just found out about this site, so I haven't been on it for super long, but I've already asked and answered questions, been active in chat and on meta, and helped create/post community ads to promote the community. I have experience with moderation-like duties - I'm on the close vote leaderboard on Physics.SE, for example, at ...

Notes: I nominate myself. I am active in beta, answering and asking questions as well as tag edits, all in order to get the site ready for public beta. I have contacted CS teachers that I know, and they have agreed to join (though they haven't joined yet due to other issues). In half a week a seemingly endless (more than 2 years) period in which I can give ...

Notes: Although slightly late to the party, this nominee would be a good choice because she is well-respected and well-established in the field at large (as evidenced by her wikipedia page), and because she clearly cares about the development of the community. Her outreach brought us a wave of many users, and her involvement in all aspects of the broader ...

These are ultimately both forms of assessment. Why not put everything under that tag? I would argue that merging everything into that tag would make for a more comprehensive database of related questions rather than splintering the two. Every exam is an assessment. While I wouldn't challenge this merging, I would suggest that we take it a step further.

As far as terminology goes, Israel uses a system very similar to the one outlined here. A curriculum is supplied by the ministry. It's open for anyone to read (provided you can read Hebrew). Here's a translation of the core points. Education in Israel Primary School (ages 6 to 12): Introduction to various aspects of Computer Science through simplification, ...

Education in the US The first thing to understand about US education is that there is no national system at all. The Federal Government sets some rules and provides a bit of funding, but the bulk of funding and nearly all of the regulations come at the level of the individual States. Much of what is here might be invalid in a few places. From the education ...
