Standard Description
L2.CS.HS.01 Categorize the roles of operating system software.
L2.CS.T.01 Identify how hardware components facilitate logic, input, output, and storage in computing systems, and their common malfunctions.
L2.NI.NCO.01 Describe the issues that impact network functionality (e.g., bandwidth, load, latency, topology).
L2.NI.C.01 Compare ways software developers protect devices and information from unauthorized access.
L2.DA.CVT.01 Use data analysis tools and techniques to identify patterns in data representing complex systems.
