dc.descriptionThe SUNY system, the largest HEI in the nation, has a unique advantage to explore semi-standardized gatekeeper CS course with the possibility to be a more transferable model for this type of courses than before across SUNY and HEIs in general.en_US
dc.description.abstractUntil K-12 fully implements computer science (CS) education nationwide, Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) must continue to assume an active, effective, and remedial role in bridging incoming freshmen to computer science.This paper discusses a fundamental and focused study that was conducted on the gatekeeper course offerings in CSprograms/departments and computing-relevant fields in fall 2014 semester at SUNY system. In particular, we analyzed a snapshot of the SUNY CS gatekeeper courses. We investigated the spectrum of gatekeeper courses, recognized the diverse needs of each, classified them into categories, and studied various aspects of the courses including their design goals, the topics of the courses, and characteristics of the courses. SUNY practices find matches from nationwide HEIs for all categories. We conclude the paper by sharing observations,thoughts and discussions on the current situations from aholistic or systemness perspective.en_US
