Description:

ScratchJr was developed to incorporate programming into the classrooms of K-2 grades. A successful achievement of this goal requires the creation of age appropriate curriculum and sets of corresponding assessment tools. This paper presents a set of design criteria and developmental guidelines for curricular materials and assessment tools and methods. The website HelloScratchJr.org has been created to disseminate these findings. The site is scheduled to go online in the summer 2015.
