Exploring Predictors of Computer Science Outcomes among Underrepresented High School Students of Color

Presented at the 2018 American Education Research Association (AERA) Conference, this study examined demographic, academic, and social/psychological predictors of computing outcomes. Study findings reveal: (a) gender differences in computing engagement and aspirations but not in competency, (b) prior CS exposure predicts gains in engagement, (c) the presence of CS role models is a significant predictor, regardless of gender, of CS engagement and aspirations.
