Heckman, Sarah; Carver, Jeffrey C.; Sherriff, Mark; Al-zubidy, Ahmed – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Context: Computing Education Research (CER) is critical to help the computing education community and policy makers support the increasing population of students who need to learn computing skills for future careers. For a community to systematically advance knowledge about a topic, the members must be able to understand published work thoroughly…

Stepanova, Anna; Weaver, Alexis; Lahey, Joanna; Alexander, Gerianne; Hammond, Tracy – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Computer science (CS) majors are in high demand and account for a large part of national computer and information technology job market applicants. Employment in this sector is projected to grow 12% between 2018 and 2028, which is faster than the average of all other occupations. Published data are available on traditional non-computer…

Olivares, Daniel; Hundhausen, Christopher; Ray, Namrata – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
As in other STEM disciplines, early computing courses tend to stress individual assignments and discourage collaboration. This can lead to negative learning experiences that compel some students to give up. According to social learning theory, one way to improve students' learning experiences is to help them form and participate actively in…

Groeneveld, Wouter; Vennekens, Joost; Aerts, Kris – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
As the importance of non-technical skills in the software engineering industry increases, the skill sets of graduates match less and less with industry expectations. A growing body of research exists that attempts to identify this skill gap. However, only few so far explicitly compare opinions of the industry with what is currently being taught in…

Wiegand, R. Paul; Bucci, Anthony; Kumar, Amruth N.; Albert, Jennifer; Gaspar, Alessio – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
In this article, we leverage ideas from the theory of coevolutionary computation to analyze interactions of students with problems. We introduce the idea of "informatively" easy or hard concepts. Our approach is different from more traditional analyses of problem difficulty such as item analysis in the sense that we consider Pareto…

Pereira, Juanan; Díaz, Óscar – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Capstone projects usually represent the most significant academic endeavor with which students have been involved. Time management tends to be one of the hurdles. On top, University students are prone to procrastinatory behavior. Inexperience and procrastination team up for students failing to meet deadlines. Supervisors strive to help. Yet heavy…

Poulsen, Seth; Herman, Geoffrey L.; Peterson, Peter A. H.; Golaszewski, Enis; Gorti, Akshita; Oliva, Linda; Scheponik, Travis; Sherman, Alan T. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
We present a psychometric evaluation of a revised version of the "Cybersecurity Concept Inventory" ("CCI"), completed by 354 students from 29 colleges and universities. The CCI is a conceptual test of understanding created to enable research on instruction quality in cybersecurity education. This work extends previous expert…

Webb, Kevin C.; Zingaro, Daniel; Liao, Soohyun Nam; Taylor, Cynthia; Lee, Cynthia; Clancy, Michael; Porter, Leo – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
A Concept Inventory (CI) is an assessment to measure student conceptual understanding of a particular topic. This article presents the results of a CI for basic data structures (BDSI) that has been previously shown to have strong evidence for validity. The goal of this work is to help researchers or instructors who administer the BDSI in their own…

Lorås, Madeleine; Sindre, Guttorm; Trætteberg, Hallvard; Aalberg, Trond – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
As the field of computing education grows and matures, it has become essential to unite computing education and higher education research. Educational research has highlighted that how students study is crucial to their learning progress, and study behaviors have been found to play an important role in students' academic success. This article…

Peña, Joslenne; Hanrahan, Benjamin V.; Rosson, Mary Beth; Cole, Carmen – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Many initiatives have focused on attracting girls and young women (K-12 or college) to computer science education. However, professional women who never learned to program have been largely ignored, despite the fact that such individuals may have many opportunities to benefit from enhanced skills and attitudes about computer programming. To…

Lyon, Louise Ann; Clayton, Chelsea – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Female-focused, grassroots communities purporting to help women learn to code are popping up in a variety of settings, indicating the motivation on the part of the participants to evade male-dominated settings while learning. However, little is known about how these groups function as an activity system. With current technology enabling the…

Lyon, Louise Ann; Green, Emily – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
College-educated women in the workforce are discovering a latent interest in and aptitude for computing motivated by the prevalence of computing as an integral part of jobs in many fields as well as continued headlines about the number of unfilled, highly paid computing jobs. One of these women's choices for retraining are the so-called coding…

Hsu, Hui Ching Kayla; Memon, Nasir D. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
The necessity for a steady STEM workforce has prompted academia to develop strategies to encourage people of diverse backgrounds to enter the STEM fields. A bridge program, also known as a conversion program, offers alternative pathways for individuals who have no prior computing education to receive the education that can help in developing their…

As society increasingly relies on digital technologies in many different aspects, those who lack relevant access and skills are lagging increasingly behind. Among the underserved groups disproportionately affected by the digital divide are women who are transitioning from incarceration and seeking to reenter the workforce outside the carceral…

Lunn, Stephanie; Zahedi, Leila; Ross, Monique; Ohland, Matthew W. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Although computing occupations have some of the greatest projected growth rates, there remains a deficit of graduates in these fields. The struggle to engage enough students to meet demands is particularly pronounced for groups already underrepresented in computing, specifically, individuals that self-identify as a woman, or as Black,…
