Austin M. Shin; Ayaan M. Kazerouni – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Background and Context: Students' programming projects are often assessed on the basis of their tests as well as their implementations, most commonly using test adequacy criteria like branch coverage, or, in some cases, mutation analysis. As a result, students are implicitly encouraged to use these tools during their development process (i.e., so…

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…

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…

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…

Vizcaíno, Aurora; García, Félix O.; Menéndez, Víctor Hugo; Manjavacas, Antonio; Márquez, Rubén; Molina, Marta – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Project managers tend to confront multiple challenges in Global Software Development (GSD), including misunderstandings about the project requirements, complex estimations of costs, risks, and efforts, along with increases in task allocation and a lack of coordination. "Soft skills" play a fundamental role in solving these challenges, as…

Christopher Hundhausen; Phill Conrad; Olusola Adesope; Ahsun Tariq – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Assessing team software development projects is notoriously difficult and typically based on subjective metrics. To help make assessments more rigorous, we conducted an empirical study to explore relationships between subjective metrics based on peer and instructor assessments, and objective metrics based on GitHub and chat data. We studied 23…

Antonija Mitrovic; Matthias Galster; Sanna Malinen; Jay Holland; Ja'afaru Musa; Negar Mohammadhassan; Raul Vincent Lumapas – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Objectives: Communication skills are crucial for effective software development teams, but those skills are difficult to teach. The goal of our project is to evaluate the effectiveness of teaching face-to-face communication skills using AVW-Space, a platform for video-based learning that provides personalized nudges to support student's engagement…

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…

Bolloju, Narasimha – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Domain models in software engineering--often represented as class diagrams--depict relevant classes in a given problem domain along with necessary relationships among those classes. These models are important because they establish links between the requirements of a given system under development and the subsequent phases of the systems…

Vrieler, Tina; Salminen-Karlsson, Minna – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
The aim of this conceptual article is to provide a framework and a lens for educators in diversifying and making CS education more inclusive. In this article, we conceptualize the notion of computer science capital (CSC), which extends Bourdieu's sociological theory of capital and Archer et al.'s work on "science capital." The CSC…

Lyon, Louise Ann; Clayton, Chelsea – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Female-focused, grassroots communities purporting to help women learn to code are popping up in a variety of settings, indicating the motivation on the part of the participants to evade male-dominated settings while learning. However, little is known about how these groups function as an activity system. With current technology enabling the…

Ting, Ying; Brockman, Morgan L.; Patil, Sameer – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Nearly all software built today impinges upon end-user privacy and needs to comply with relevant regulations. Therefore, there have been increasing calls for integrating considerations of compliance with privacy regulations throughout the software engineering lifecycle. However, software engineers are typically trained in the technical fields and…

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…

Oleson, Alannah; Wortzman, Brett; Ko, Amy J. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Design is a distinct discipline with its own practices, tools, professions, and areas of scholarship. However, practitioners from other fields often leverage aspects of design in their own work, leading to subfields like engineering design and architecture design that are neither wholly design nor wholly the intersecting discipline. Similarly,…

Thomas, Paul J.; Patel, Devang; Magana, Alejandra J. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Software modeling is an integral practice for software engineers, especially as the complexity of software solutions increases. Unified Modeling Language (UML) is the industry standard for software modeling. however, it is often used incorrectly and misunderstood by novice software designers. This study is centered around understanding patterns of…
