The CAPE framework is a powerful framework for building programs that lead to equitable outcomes in K-12 computer science education. We have also been using the framework to disaggregate existing programs across several projects.
As part of one of our projects with key partners, we have created an extended CAPE codebook. The codebook considers subcomponents of each CAPE component, categories of subcomponents and subcategories.
This codebook has been used in several projects, including to conduct a gap analysis of existing literature.
