Rafi Santo; Aman Yadav; David Phelps – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Those working toward equitable K-12 computing education in the United States have always had their work cut out for them: understanding how best to teach, developing robust curricula, designing novel tools, building teacher capacity, and supporting systemic change in schools to bring equitable computing education to young people. Collectively,…

Draper, Steve; Maguire, Joseph – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
The overall aim of this article is to stimulate discussion about the activities within CER, and to develop a more thoughtful and explicit perspective on the different types of research activity within CER, and their relationships with each other. While theories may be the most valuable outputs of research to those wishing to apply them, for…

Tedre, Matti; Pajunen, John – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
A rich body of empirically grounded results and a solid theory base have often been viewed as signs of a mature discipline. Many disciplines have frequently debated what they should accept as legitimate kinds of theories, the proper roles of theory, and appropriate reference disciplines. Computing education research (CER) in particular has seen a…

Pelánek, Radek; Effenberger, Tomáš – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
To provide practice and assessment of computational thinking, we need specific problems students can solve. There are many such problems, but they are hard to find. Learning environments and assessments often use only specific types of problems and thus do not cover computational thinking in its whole scope. We provide an extensive catalog of…

Groeneveld, Wouter; Vennekens, Joost; Aerts, Kris – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
As the importance of non-technical skills in the software engineering industry increases, the skill sets of graduates match less and less with industry expectations. A growing body of research exists that attempts to identify this skill gap. However, only few so far explicitly compare opinions of the industry with what is currently being taught in…

Karnalim, Oscar; Simon; Chivers, William; Panca, Billy Susanto – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
To help address programming plagiarism and collusion, students should be informed about acceptable practices and about program similarity, both coincidental and non-coincidental. However, current approaches are usually manual, brief, and delivered well before students are in a situation where they might commit academic misconduct. This article…

Michaelis, Joseph E.; Weintrop, David – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Computing is rapidly becoming a critical literacy for succeeding in an increasingly technological world. While the proliferation of programs dedicated to broadening participation in computing increases access, computing education research can benefit from more directly drawing on current interest development theory to improve interventions that…

Kao, Yvonne; Matlen, Bryan; Weintrop, David – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
The 1980s and 1990s saw a robust connection between computer science education and cognitive psychology as researchers worked to understand how students learn to program. More recently, academic disciplines such as science and engineering have begun drawing on cognitive psychology research and theories of learning to create instructional materials…

Robins, Anthony V. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
This paper explores a major theoretical framework from psychology, Dual Process Theory (DPT), which has received surprisingly little attention in the computing education literature. DPT postulates the existence of two qualitatively different kinds of cognitive systems, a fast, intuitive "System 1" and a slow, reflective "System…

Eglash, Ron; Bennett, Audrey; Cooke, Laquana; Babbitt, William; Lachney, Michael – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Students' lives, both in and out of school, are full of different forms of value. Wealthy students enjoy value in the form of financial capital; their fit to hegemonic social practices; excellent health care and so on. Low-income students, especially those from African American, Native American, and Latinx communities, often lack access to those…

Crawford, Chris S.; Gilbert, Juan E. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) hardware is becoming more affordable and accessible. However, there is limited work investigating ways to design software that broadens participation with BCI technology. In this article, we present a block-based programming environment designed to assist novice programmers with creating BCI applications. We also…

Many computer science programs have capstone experiences or project courses that allow students to integrate knowledge from the full breadth of their major. Such capstone projects may be student-designed, instructor-designed, designed in conjunction with outside companies, or integrated with ongoing free and open source (FOSS) projects. The…

Fronza, Ilenia; El Ioini, Nabil; Corral, Luis – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2017
Computational Thinking (CT) has been recognized as one of the fundamental skills that all graduates should acquire. For this reason, motivational concerns need to be addressed at an early age of a child, and reaching students who do not consider themselves candidates for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines is important as…

Marshall, Linda; Pieterse, Vreda; Thompson, Lisa; Venter, Dina M. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2016
Employers require software engineers to work in teams when developing software systems. It is therefore important for graduates to have experienced teamwork before they enter the job market. We describe an experiential learning exercise that we designed to teach the software engineering process in conjunction with teamwork skills. The underlying…

Gestwicki, Paul; McNely, Brian – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2016
We define and describe the academic studio model for interdisciplinary, undergraduate, project-oriented education. This model brings faculty, students, and community partners together to investigate an openended academic question, and their collaboration yields an original product that represents their inquiry. The academic studio integrates agile…
