The CodeHS pretest measures two main outcomes:

Student Mindsets: The mission of CodeHS is to empower all students to meaningfully impact the future. We hope that by providing engaging learning experiences, more middle and high school students will be inspired and motivated to engage with CS in college and beyond. We will measure self-efficacy and interest in pursuing computer science beyond their current CodeHS course across all students.

Skills and Knowledge: Learning computer science requires students to use and build on their reasoning and problem-solving skills. We will measure logical thinking and any related math skills for the course you will be teaching.

You can preview the pretests at Each pretest is a handout for the first lesson of your course.
