Standards in this Framework

Standard Description
M-NI-01 Model how different sets of rules (protocols) are used to transmit different types of data across networks and the Internet.
M-NI-02 Model how information is disguised using different methods of encryption to secure it during transmission from one point to another.
M-NI-03 Explain how physical and digital security practices and measures proactively address the threat of breaches to personal and private data.
M-DA-01 Store data using multiple encoding methods.
M-DA-02 Collect data using computational tools and transform the data to make it more useful and reliable.
M-DA-03 Refine computational models based on the data they have generated.
M-AP-01 Distribute tasks and maintain a project timeline when collaboratively developing computational artifacts.
M-AP-02 Decompose problems and subproblems into parts to facilitate the design, implementation, and review of programs.
M-AP-03 Seek and incorporate feedback from team members and users to refine a solution that meets user needs.
M-AP-04 Create flowcharts and/or pseudocode to address complex problems as algorithms.
M-AP-05 Create clearly named variables that represent different data types and perform operations on their values.
M-AP-06 Create procedures with parameters to organize code and make it easier to reuse.
M-AP-07 Design and iteratively develop programs that combine control structures, including nested loops and compound conditionals.
M-AP-08 Incorporate existing code, media, and libraries into original programs, and give attribution.
M-AP-09 Systematically test and refine programs using a range of test cases.
M-AP-10 Document programs in order to make them easier to follow, test, and debug.
M-AP-11 Evaluate licenses that limit or restrict use of computational artifacts when using resources such as libraries.
M-AP-12 Develop a process creating a computational artifact that leads to a minimum viable product followed by reflection, analysis, and iteration.
M-IC-01 Discuss issues of bias and accessibility in existing technologies.
M-IC-02 Compare the positive & negative effects of computing technologies on society.
M-IC-03 Collaborate with others using appropriate tools at the local, national, and/or international levels.
M-IC-04 Discuss the benefits and consequences of making information either public or private.
M-CS-01 Recommend improvements to the design of computing devices based on an analysis of how users interact with the devices
M-CS-02 Design projects that combine hardware and software components to collect and exchange data.
M-CS-03 Identify and fix problems with computing devices and their components systematically.
