Anne-Kathrin Peters; Rafael Capilla; Vlad Constantin Coroama; Rogardt Heldal; Patricia Lago; Ola Leifler; Ana Moreira; João Paulo Fernandes; Birgit Penzenstadler; Jari Porras; Colin C. Venters – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Research shows that the global society as organized today, with our current technological and economic system, is impossible to sustain. We are living in an era in which human activities in highly industrialized countries are responsible for overshooting several planetary boundaries, with poorer communities contributing the least to the problems…

Niloofar Mansoor; Cole S. Peterson; Michael D. Dodd; Bonita Sharif – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Background and Context: Understanding how a student programmer solves different task types in different programming languages is essential to understanding how we can further improve teaching tools to support students to be industry-ready when they graduate. It also provides insight into students' thought processes in different task types and…

Maral Kargarmoakhar; Monique Ross; Zahra Hazari; Stephen Secules; Mark Allen Weiss; Michael Georgiopoulos; Kenneth Christensen; Tiana Solis – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
While computing programs in the U.S. are experiencing growth in enrollment trends, they are still grappling with matters related to retention and persistence of computing undergraduates. One construct identified by scholars as having an impact on persistence in computing is computing identity, which is shaped by constructs such as recognition,…

Christel Sirocchi; Annika Pofantis Ostergren; Alessandro Bogliolo – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Digital competence (DC) is a broad set of skills, attitudes, and knowledge for confident, critical, and responsible use of digital technologies in every aspect of life. DC proves essential in the contemporary digital landscape, yet its diffusion is hindered by biases, misunderstandings, and limited awareness. Teaching Informatics in the…

Mike Richards; Kevin Waugh; Mark A Slaymaker; Marian Petre; John Woodthorpe; Daniel Gooch – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Cheating has been a long-standing issue in university assessments. However, the release of ChatGPT and other free-to-use generative AI tools has provided a new and distinct method for cheating. Students can run many assessment questions through the tool and generate a superficially compelling answer, which may or may not be accurate. We ran a…

Noelle Brown; Benjamin Xie; Ella Sarder; Casey Fiesler; Eliane S. Wiese – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
The computing education research community now has at least 40 years of published research on teaching ethics in higher education. To examine the state of our field, we present a systematic literature review of papers in the "Association for Computing Machinery" computing education venues that describe teaching ethics in higher-education…

Stephanie Jill Lunn; Ellen Zerbe; Monique Ross – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Although there is a great demand for graduates in computing fields, companies frequently struggle to find enough workers. They may also grapple with obtaining racial, ethnic, and gender diversity in representation. It has been suggested that the hiring process further contributes to these inequities. This study examined undergraduate computing…

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,…

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…

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…

Muldner, Kasia; Jennings, Jay; Chiarelli, Veronica – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
This article reviews literature on worked examples in the context of programming activities. We focus on two types of examples, namely, code-tracing and code-generation, because there is sufficient research on these to warrant a review. We synthesize key results according to themes that emerged from the review. This synthesis aims to provide…

Akdur, Deniz – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Many practitioners might struggle with becoming productive in different software engineering (SE) roles due to misalignment of the skills learnt during the university time with what is expected in the industry. Companies spend significant resources to train the personnel, whose academic backgrounds are not only based on "computing…

Szabo, Claudia; Sheard, Judy – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
The use of established and discipline-specific theories within research and practice is an indication of the maturity of a discipline. With computing education research as a relatively young discipline, there has been recent interest in investigating theories that may prove foundational to work in this area, with discipline-specific theories and…

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…

Brown, Neil C. C.; Weill-Tessier, Pierre; Sekula, Maksymilian; Costache, Alexandra-Lucia; Kölling, Michael – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Objectives: Java is a popular programming language for use in computing education, but it is difficult to get a wide picture of the issues that it presents for novices; most studies look only at the types or frequency of errors. In this observational study, we aim to learn how novices use different features of the Java language. Participants:…
