MARCH 27-APRIL 30: RPPforCS Community Survey
At the end of the month we will be launching this year’s RPPforCS Community Survey.

The survey will also gather feedback on the activities to date and inform the next year's activities.

Did you miss the last webinar? We focused on student-based learning assessments in an RPP context with the speakers from SRI (Marie Bienkowski, Daisy Rutstein and Timothy Podkul) and (Monica McGill and Adrienne Decker). Here are the link and the presentation slides. (You can find all previous webinars here.)

Dana Wanzer, a doctoral student at CGU is conducting a study about improving evidence use in RPPs.  Do you want to help contribute to the growing field of research on evidence use in RPPs? Do you want to help RPPforCS examine evidence use in CS for ALL RPPs? Consider having your RPP participate in the Improving Evidence Use study to identify strategies and factors to best promote use in partnerships between researchers/evaluators and youth programs! This study involves one survey each for the lead researcher and lead staff from the youth program (5-15 minutes), as well as a survey for all members of the partnership (15-30 minutes). Furthermore, if at least five members of your partnership participate, you will get a tailored report of the findings for your partnership!

You can take the survey at this link. Alternatively, you should have received a reminder to participate in the study by Dana Wanzer, doctoral student at CGU, and can use the link in that email to participate in the study. 

Stephanie is reading “#MoreThanCode: Practitioners reimagine the landscape of technology for justice and equity” by Sasha Costanza-Chock, Maya Wagoner, Berhan Taye, Caroline Rivas, Chris Schweidler, Georgia Bullen, & the Tech for Social Justice Project. Also “Shrill” by Lindy West. Happy Women’s History Month!

This month on Slack we are wondering how broadening participation goals and your central problems of practice are interwoven. Have your goals shifted as your research cycle iterates? Join us in Slack for this discussion in the RPPforCS channel.
