Maral Kargarmoakhar; Monique Ross; Zahra Hazari; Stephen Secules; Mark Allen Weiss; Michael Georgiopoulos; Kenneth Christensen; Tiana Solis – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
While computing programs in the U.S. are experiencing growth in enrollment trends, they are still grappling with matters related to retention and persistence of computing undergraduates. One construct identified by scholars as having an impact on persistence in computing is computing identity, which is shaped by constructs such as recognition,…

Mike Richards; Kevin Waugh; Mark A Slaymaker; Marian Petre; John Woodthorpe; Daniel Gooch – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Cheating has been a long-standing issue in university assessments. However, the release of ChatGPT and other free-to-use generative AI tools has provided a new and distinct method for cheating. Students can run many assessment questions through the tool and generate a superficially compelling answer, which may or may not be accurate. We ran a…

Noelle Brown; Benjamin Xie; Ella Sarder; Casey Fiesler; Eliane S. Wiese – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
The computing education research community now has at least 40 years of published research on teaching ethics in higher education. To examine the state of our field, we present a systematic literature review of papers in the "Association for Computing Machinery" computing education venues that describe teaching ethics in higher-education…

Stephanie Jill Lunn; Ellen Zerbe; Monique Ross – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Although there is a great demand for graduates in computing fields, companies frequently struggle to find enough workers. They may also grapple with obtaining racial, ethnic, and gender diversity in representation. It has been suggested that the hiring process further contributes to these inequities. This study examined undergraduate computing…

Anael Kuperwajs Cohen; Alannah Oleson; Amy J. Ko – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Collaboration is an important aspect of computing. In a classroom setting, working with others can increase a student's motivation to attempt more challenges, reduce the difficulty of complicated concepts, and bring about greater overall success. Despite extensive research in other domains, there has been minimal exploration within computing on…

Akdur, Deniz – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Many practitioners might struggle with becoming productive in different software engineering (SE) roles due to misalignment of the skills learnt during the university time with what is expected in the industry. Companies spend significant resources to train the personnel, whose academic backgrounds are not only based on "computing…

Miedema, Daphne; Fletcher, George; Aivaloglou, Efthimia – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Prior studies in the Computer Science education literature have illustrated that novices make many mistakes in composing SQL queries. Query formulation proves to be difficult for students. Only recently, some headway was made towards understanding why SQL leads to so many mistakes, by uncovering student misconceptions. In this article, we shed new…

Soyka, Chantal; Schaper, Niclas; Bender, Elena; Striewe, Michael; Ullrich, Meike – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Modeling is an integral part of many computing-related disciplines and thus also represents a curricular core component in computing education in tertiary education. Competence models in which modeling is integrated at least to some extent already exist in some of these disciplines. However, for the core component of graphical modeling, a…

Perez, Melissa; Garcia, Patricia – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Norms and values in computing education are constantly changing as dominant narratives about the role of computing in society evolve over time. Within the current evolving landscape of computing education, researchers and practitioners have advocated for ensuring people from all backgrounds, and particularly women, non-binary, and Black,…

Belland, Brian R.; Kim, Chanmin; Zhang, Anna Y.; Lee, Eunseo – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
This article reports the analysis of data from five different studies to identify predictors of preservice, early childhood teachers' views of (a) the nature of coding, (b) integration of coding into preschool classrooms, and (c) relation of coding to fields other than computer science (CS). Significant changes in views of coding were predicted by…

Vásquez, Francisco; Calderón, Juan Felipe; Meza, Federico; Vásquez, Andrea – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
There is increasing interest in computer science and computing bachelor programs due to the growing importance of technology in the globalized world. Thus, as higher education institutions strive to serve a diverse student demographic, it is salient to gauge their programming abilities to improve guidance on learning processes regarding their…

Allison, Jordan – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
As technology and curricula continue to evolve and develop, the prevalence and effectiveness of continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities for computer science teachers is becoming increasingly more important. However, key questions remain about what the characteristics are for effective CPD in this context. Through the presentation…

Heather Killen; Merijke Coenraad; Virginia Byrne; Lautaro Cabrera; Kelly Mills; Diane Jass Ketelhut; Jandelyn D. Plane – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Computational thinking (CT) is playing an increasingly relevant role within disciplinary teaching in elementary school, particularly in science. However, many teachers are unfamiliar with CT, either because their education occurred before the popularization of CT or because CT instruction was not included in their pre-service coursework. For these…

Alvine B. Belle; Callum Sutherland; Opeyemi O. Adesina; Sègla Kpodjedo; Nathanael Ojong; Lisa Cole – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Background: People who are racialized, gendered, or otherwise minoritized are underrepresented in computing professions in North America. This is reflected in undergraduate computer science (CS) programs, in which students from marginalized backgrounds continue to experience inequities that do not typically affect White cis-men. This is especially…

Antonija Mitrovic; Matthias Galster; Sanna Malinen; Jay Holland; Ja'afaru Musa; Negar Mohammadhassan; Raul Vincent Lumapas – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Objectives: Communication skills are crucial for effective software development teams, but those skills are difficult to teach. The goal of our project is to evaluate the effectiveness of teaching face-to-face communication skills using AVW-Space, a platform for video-based learning that provides personalized nudges to support student's engagement…
