Katai, Zoltan; Toth, Laszlo; Adorjani, Alpar Karoly – Informatics in Education, 2014
A recent report by the joint Informatics Europe & ACM Europe Working Group on Informatics Education emphasizes that: (1) computational thinking is an important ability that all people should possess; (2) informatics-based concepts, abilities and skills are teachable, and must be included in the primary and particularly in the secondary school…

Avancena, Aimee Theresa; Nishihara, Akinori; Vergara, John Paul – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2012
This paper presents the online cognitive and algorithm tests, which were developed in order to determine if certain cognitive factors and fundamental algorithms correlate with the performance of students in their introductory computer science course. The tests were implemented among Management Information Systems majors from the Philippines and…

Korthikanti, Vijay Anand Reddy – ProQuest LLC, 2011
Energy consumption by computer systems has emerged as an important concern, both at the level of individual devices (limited battery capacity in mobile systems) and at the societal level (the production of Green House Gases). In parallel architectures, applications may be executed on a variable number of cores and these cores may operate at…

Ding, Shuai – ProQuest LLC, 2013
The inverted index is the main data structure used by all the major search engines. Search engines build an inverted index on their collection to speed up query processing. As the size of the web grows, the length of the inverted list structures, which can easily grow to hundreds of MBs or even GBs for common terms (roughly linear in the size of…

Dios, R.; Geller, J. – Computers & Education, 1998
Focuses on identifying the educational effects of "activity oriented" instructional techniques. Examines which instructional methods produce enhanced learning and comprehension. Discusses the problem of learning "sorting algorithms," a major topic in every Computer Science curriculum. Presents a low-tech, hands-on teaching method for sorting…

Prinsloo, Paul – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2017
In the socio-technical imaginary of higher education, algorithmic decision-making offers huge potential, but we also cannot deny the risks and ethical concerns. In fleeing from Frankenstein's monster, there is a real possibility that we will meet Kafka on our path, and not find our way out of the maze of ethical considerations in the nexus between…

Duncan, David R.; Litwiller, Bonnie H. – School Science and Mathematics, 1984
Describes eight increasingly sophisticated and efficient sorting algorithms including linear insertion, binary insertion, shellsort, bubble exchange, shakersort, quick sort, straight selection, and tree selection. Provides challenges for the reader and the student to program these efficiently. (JM)

Bell, Judith; Bell, Tim – Informatics in Education, 2018
Computational thinking is becoming common in K-12 curricula, and at the same time there is interest in how STEM subjects can be integrated with the Arts (referred to as STEAM). There are some obvious connections between music and computation, but the idea of engaging with genuine computational thinking while also having authentic music learning…

Blanchard, Simon J.; Aloise, Daniel; DeSarbo, Wayne S. – Psychometrika, 2012
The p-median offers an alternative to centroid-based clustering algorithms for identifying unobserved categories. However, existing p-median formulations typically require data aggregation into a single proximity matrix, resulting in masked respondent heterogeneity. A proposed three-way formulation of the p-median problem explicitly considers…

Fairlie, Robert; Hoffmann, Florian; Oreopoulos, Philip – National Bureau of Economic Research, 2011
This paper uses detailed administrative data from one of the largest community colleges in the United States to quantify the extent to which academic performance depends on students being of similar race or ethnicity to their instructors. To address the concern of endogenous sorting, we use both student and classroom fixed effects and focus on…

Yerkey, A. Neil – Information Processing and Management, 1983
Following a discussion of derivative versus assignment indexing, use of roles, and concept behind Preserved Concept Indexing System, features of PERMDEX (microcomputer program to assist in creation of permuted printed index) are described including indexer input and prompts, the shunting algorithm, and sorting and printing routines. Fourteen…

Williams, James D. – 1983
A study investigated the relationship between cognitive style and coherence in discourse. The primary hypothesis was that coherence would vary bimodally by cognitive style classification. Forty-four freshman composition students from three west coast colleges completed the Culture Fair Intelligence Test, the Group Embedded Figures Test, and the…
