Marcus Messer; Neil C. C. Brown; Michael Kölling; Miaojing Shi – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
We conducted a systematic literature review on automated grading and feedback tools for programming education. We analysed 121 research papers from 2017 to 2021 inclusive and categorised them based on skills assessed, approach, language paradigm, degree of automation, and evaluation techniques. Most papers assess the correctness of assignments in…

Gregor Große-bölting; Dietrich Gerstenberger; Lara Gildehaus; Andreas Mühling; Carsten Schulte – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
The disciplinary identity as a computer science student has recently received increasing attention as a well-developed subject identity can help with increasing retention, interest, and motivation. Besides, identity theory can serve as an analytical lens for issues around diversity. However, identity is also often perceived as a vague, overused…

Fujiko Robledo Yamamoto; Lecia Barker; Amy Voida – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
The benefits of service learning in computer and information science (CIS) are believed to be significant, ranging from providing students with real-world experiences to retaining students to positively impacting community partners. Although there are many benefits of service learning, the CIS domain does impose unique costs for integrating…

Paiva, José Carlos; Leal, José Paulo; Figueira, Álvaro – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Practical programming competencies are critical to the success in computer science (CS) education and go-to-market of fresh graduates. Acquiring the required level of skills is a long journey of discovery, trial and error, and optimization seeking through a broad range of programming activities that learners must perform themselves. It is not…

Lukkarinen, Aleksi; Malmi, Lauri; Haaranen, Lassi – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
During the past two decades, "event-driven programming" (EDP) has emerged as a central and almost ubiquitous concept in modern software development: Graphical user interfaces are self-evident in most mobile and web-based applications, as well as in many embedded systems, and they are most often based on reacting to events. To facilitate…

Taipalus, Toni; Seppänen, Ville – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Structured Query Language (SQL) skills are crucial in software engineering and computer science. However, teaching SQL effectively requires both pedagogical skill and considerable knowledge of the language. Educators and scholars have proposed numerous considerations for the betterment of SQL education, yet these considerations may be too numerous…

Prvan, Marina; Ožegovic, Julije – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
This article provides a survey of methods and paradigms for teaching Computer Networks (CN). Since the theoretical concepts are rather abstract in this subject, and students often find them too technical and difficult to understand, many authors attempt to answer the question on how to improve students' motivation and interest for the complex…

Jayathirtha, Gayithri; Kafai, Yasmin B. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Electronic textiles, which integrate computation with fabrics through a redesigned interface of microcontrollers, sensors, and actuators, have expanded possibilities not only for engineering, fashion, and human-computer interaction but also for computer science education itself. While individual studies involving electronic textiles have shown…
