Towards a Framework for Characterising Concurrent Comprehension
Hughes, Connor; Buckley, Jim; Exton, Chris; O'Carroll, Des
Computer Science Education, v15 n1 p7-24 Mar 2005
This paper proposes an evaluation framework for assessing students' comprehension of concurrent programs. The need for such a framework is illustrated by a review of various Computer Science Education forums. This review suggests that there is little pedagogical research in the area of concurrent software, particularly with respect to assessing students' knowledge. In particular, the proposed framework attempts to categorize the types of information students seek and the types of information they obtain, as they learn about concurrent software. Thus the framework could be used to guide teaching methods in this area, to hone the representations used to portray concurrent software to students and subsequently, to assess students' performance.
