abstract

  • This paper builds on an earlier study of retention in U.S. computer science bachelor's programs in the 2016-17 academic year. Focusing on the 2017-18 academic year, this paper presents and analyzes comprehensive U.S. student data for the six bachelor's and three associate's computing disciplines in which ACM has produced curriculum guidelines. Disaggregating data by gender, race/ethnicity, and type of institution, the 2017-18 student retention analyses in this paper help define national benchmarks that can benefit computing educators, researchers, and academic leaders in their efforts to address diversity and inclusion issues in their institutions and provide roadmaps for further investigation.
