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…

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…

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…

Wiegand, R. Paul; Bucci, Anthony; Kumar, Amruth N.; Albert, Jennifer; Gaspar, Alessio – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
In this article, we leverage ideas from the theory of coevolutionary computation to analyze interactions of students with problems. We introduce the idea of "informatively" easy or hard concepts. Our approach is different from more traditional analyses of problem difficulty such as item analysis in the sense that we consider Pareto…

Pereira, Juanan; Díaz, Óscar – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Capstone projects usually represent the most significant academic endeavor with which students have been involved. Time management tends to be one of the hurdles. On top, University students are prone to procrastinatory behavior. Inexperience and procrastination team up for students failing to meet deadlines. Supervisors strive to help. Yet heavy…

Poulsen, Seth; Herman, Geoffrey L.; Peterson, Peter A. H.; Golaszewski, Enis; Gorti, Akshita; Oliva, Linda; Scheponik, Travis; Sherman, Alan T. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
We present a psychometric evaluation of a revised version of the "Cybersecurity Concept Inventory" ("CCI"), completed by 354 students from 29 colleges and universities. The CCI is a conceptual test of understanding created to enable research on instruction quality in cybersecurity education. This work extends previous expert…

Webb, Kevin C.; Zingaro, Daniel; Liao, Soohyun Nam; Taylor, Cynthia; Lee, Cynthia; Clancy, Michael; Porter, Leo – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
A Concept Inventory (CI) is an assessment to measure student conceptual understanding of a particular topic. This article presents the results of a CI for basic data structures (BDSI) that has been previously shown to have strong evidence for validity. The goal of this work is to help researchers or instructors who administer the BDSI in their own…

Lorås, Madeleine; Sindre, Guttorm; Trætteberg, Hallvard; Aalberg, Trond – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
As the field of computing education grows and matures, it has become essential to unite computing education and higher education research. Educational research has highlighted that how students study is crucial to their learning progress, and study behaviors have been found to play an important role in students' academic success. This article…

Sax, Linda J.; Newhouse, Kaitlin N. S.; Goode, Joanna; Nakajima, Tomoko M.; Skorodinsky, Max; Sendowski, Michelle – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
The Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles (APCSP) course was introduced in 2016 to address long-standing gender and racial/ethnic disparities in the United States among students taking Advanced Placement Computer Science (APCS) in high school, as well as among those who pursued computing majors in college. Although APCSP has drawn a more…

Babes-Vroman, Monica; Nguyen, Thuytien N.; Nguyen, Thu D. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
With the number of jobs in computer occupations on the rise, there is a greater need for computer science (CS) graduates than ever. At the same time, most CS departments across the country are only seeing 25-30% of women students in their classes, meaning that we are failing to draw interest from a large portion of the population. In this work, we…

Lunn, Stephanie; Ross, Monique; Hazari, Zahra; Weiss, Mark Allen; Georgiopoulos, Michael; Christensen, Kenneth – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Despite increasing demands for skilled workers within the technological domain, there is still a deficit in the number of graduates in computing fields (computer science, information technology, and computer engineering). Understanding the factors that contribute to students' motivation and persistence is critical to helping educators,…

Lyon, Louise Ann; Green, Emily – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
College-educated women in the workforce are discovering a latent interest in and aptitude for computing motivated by the prevalence of computing as an integral part of jobs in many fields as well as continued headlines about the number of unfilled, highly paid computing jobs. One of these women's choices for retraining are the so-called coding…
