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…

Arif Rachmatullah; Jessica Vandenberg; Sein Shin; Eric Wiebe – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
The current study compared American, Korean, and Indonesian middle and high school students' CS attitudes. Concurrently, this study also examined whether the items in the CS attitudes scale exhibit country and gender measurement biases. We gathered data on CS attitudes from middle and high school students in the US, Korea, and Indonesia. The…

Arawjo, Ian; Mogos, Ariam – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Even in the turn toward justice-oriented pedagogy, computing education tends to overlook the quality of intergroup relationships, which risks entrenching division. In this article, we establish an intercultural approach to computing education, informed by intercultural and peace education, prejudice reduction, and the sociology of racism and…

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…

Hubwieser, Peter; Armoni, Michal; Giannakos, Michail N. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2015
Aiming to collect various concepts, approaches, and strategies for improving computer science education in K-12 schools, we edited this second special issue of the "ACM TOCE" journal. Our intention was to collect a set of case studies from different countries that would describe all relevant aspects of specific implementations of…

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…

Gal-Ezer, Judith; Stephenson, Chris – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2014
This article tells a story of K-12 computer science in two different countries. These two countries differ profoundly in culture, language, government and state structure, and in their education systems. Despite these differences, however, they share the pursuit of excellence and high standards in K-12 education. In Israel, curriculum is…

McGill, Monica M. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2012
Digital games are marketed, mass-produced, and consumed by an increasing number of people and the game industry is only expected to grow. In response, postsecondary institutions in the UK and the U.S. have started to create game degree programs. Though curriculum theorists provide insight into the process of creating a new program, no formal…
