Riese, Emma; Bälter, Olle – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Assessment plays an important role in education and can both guide and motivate learning. Assessment can, however, be carried out with different aims: providing the students with feedback that supports the learning (formative assessment) and judging to which degree the students have fulfilled the intended learning outcomes (summative assessment).…

Bosnic, Ivana; Ciccozzi, Federico; Crnkovic, Ivica; Cavrak, Igor; Di Nitto, Elisabetta; Mirandola, Raffaela; Žagar, Mario – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Teaching Distributed Software Development with real distributed settings is a challenging and rewarding task. Distributed courses are idiosyncratically more challenging than standard local courses. We have experienced this during our distributed course, which has been run for 14 consecutive years. In this article, we present and analyze the…

Peters, Anne-Kathrin – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
This article concludes a longitudinal study with the broader aim to explore learner development as a long-term, social process. One goal has been to inform the endeavours of improving student engagement, retention, as well as under-representation of certain demographics in computing. Students of two computer science-related study programmes…

Frezza, S.; Daniels, M.; Wilkin, A. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
This research aimed at evaluating the development and use of low-cost affective domain assessment instruments, culminating with personal and group characterization of representative global information technology (IT) professional values. Values and valuing are a compelling component of Bloom's affective domain of learning for engineering…

Steghöfer, Jan-Philipp; Burden, Håkan; Hebig, Regina; Calikli, Gul; Feldt, Robert; Hammouda, Imed; Horkoff, Jennifer; Knauss, Eric; Liebel, Grischa – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2018
Problem: The involvement of external stakeholders in capstone projects and project courses is desirable due to its potential positive effects on the students. Capstone projects particularly profit from the inclusion of an industrial partner to make the project relevant and help students acquire professional skills. In addition, an increasing push…

Thota, Neena; Berglund, Anders – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2016
We know from research that there is an intimate relationship between student learning and the context of learning. What is not known or understood well enough is the relationship of the students' background and previous studies to the understanding and learning of the subject area--here, computer science (CS). To show the contextual influences on…

Ronaldsson, Lennart; Skogh, Inga-Britt – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2014
In this article, the development of the Swedish informatics curriculum during the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s is studied and described. The study's design is inspired by the curriculum theory presented by Lindensjö and Lundgren [2000], who suggest using the concept of arenas (the arenas of enactment, transformation and realisation) when discussing…

Hubwieser, Peter; Armoni, Michal; Giannakos, Michail N.; Mittermeir, Roland T. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2014
In view of the recent developments in many countries, for example, in the USA and in the UK, it appears that computer science education (CSE) in primary or secondary schools (K-12) has reached a significant turning point, shifting its focus from ICT-oriented to rigorous computer science concepts. The goal of this special issue is to offer a…
