Lunn, Stephanie; Samary, Maíra Marques; Hambrusch, Susanne; Yadav, Aman – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Computer science education (CSEd) is a growing interdisciplinary area that continues to gain momentum from students, researchers, and educators. Yet, there are few formal programs or degree options for students interested in pursuing graduate work in CSEd. This article explores the existing state of CSEd in the United States (U.S.) through…

Lishinski, Alex; Yadav, Aman – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Research has repeatedly shown self-efficacy to be associated with course outcomes in CS and across other fields. CS education research has documented this and has developed CS-specific self-efficacy measurement instruments, but to date there have been only a few studies examining interventions intended to improve students' self-efficacy in CS, and…

Gretter, Sarah; Yadav, Aman; Sands, Phil; Hambrusch, Susanne – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
The current efforts to expand computer science (CS) education in K-12 schools, such as the "CS for All" initiative, highlight the need for all students to get an opportunity to study computing. However, as recent research has shown, diversity in computing at the K-12 level remains problematic, and additional research is needed to look at…

Yadav, Aman; Berges, Marc – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Computer science education efforts are expanding across the globe to equip students with the necessary computing skills for today's digital world. However, preparing students to become literate in computing activities requires the training of tens of thousands of teachers in computer science. The discrepancy between student needs and teacher…

Yadav, Aman; Mayfield, Chris; Zhou, Ninger; Hambrusch, Susanne; Korb, John T. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2014
Computational thinking (CT) is broadly defined as the mental activity for abstracting problems and formulating solutions that can be automated. In an increasingly information-based society, CT is becoming an essential skill for everyone. To ensure that students develop this ability at the K-12 level, it is important to provide teachers with an…
