Today’s geeky thought

So, as part of sabbatical, I’m maybe going to get involved in CMMI and trying to increase the process maturity here.  (Yes, I’m so old I still think of it as the Process Maturity Model.)  Now, what the heck do I really know of process maturity, me a denizen of the ivy covered tower?

And it struck me today.  I’m involved in the AP CS exam, both developing and grading the exam.  And, thanks to the work of a whole lot of people, AP CS really is at level 5.  Maybe not the development of the exam, but oh my, the grading of the free response sure strikes me as a well known, well documented system where measurements are taken and used for improvement.

Cool.  I really might be able to help.
