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…

Perez, Melissa; Garcia, Patricia – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Norms and values in computing education are constantly changing as dominant narratives about the role of computing in society evolve over time. Within the current evolving landscape of computing education, researchers and practitioners have advocated for ensuring people from all backgrounds, and particularly women, non-binary, and Black,…

Desportes, Kayla; McDermott, Kathleen; Bergner, Yoav; Payne, William – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Performing arts computing environments have received little attention in the educational sphere; yet, they offer opportunities for learners to validate their efforts, ideas, and skills through showcasing their work in a public-facing performance. In this work, we explore an out-of-school dance and computing educational program run by the…

Peña, Joslenne; Hanrahan, Benjamin V.; Rosson, Mary Beth; Cole, Carmen – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Many initiatives have focused on attracting girls and young women (K-12 or college) to computer science education. However, professional women who never learned to program have been largely ignored, despite the fact that such individuals may have many opportunities to benefit from enhanced skills and attitudes about computer programming. To…

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…

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…

Hsu, Hui Ching Kayla; Memon, Nasir D. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
The necessity for a steady STEM workforce has prompted academia to develop strategies to encourage people of diverse backgrounds to enter the STEM fields. A bridge program, also known as a conversion program, offers alternative pathways for individuals who have no prior computing education to receive the education that can help in developing their…

Seo, Hyunjin; Altschwager, Darcey; Choi, Baekyoung; Song, Sejun; Britton, Hannah; Ramaswamy, Megha; Schuster, Bernard; Ault, Marilyn; Ayinala, Kaushik; Zaman, Rafida; Tihen, Ben; Yenugu, Lohitha – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
As society increasingly relies on digital technologies in many different aspects, those who lack relevant access and skills are lagging increasingly behind. Among the underserved groups disproportionately affected by the digital divide are women who are transitioning from incarceration and seeking to reenter the workforce outside the carceral…

Hardin, Caroline D. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Hackathons, the time-bound collaborative project-based computer science competitions increasingly popular with computer science students, are one of the largest-scale innovations in computing education of the past decade. This research examined three hackathons and 46,500 surveys to find that educational benefits were unequal between genders in…

Erete, Sheena; Thomas, Karla; Nacu, Denise; Dickinson, Jessa; Thompson, Naomi; Pinkard, Nichole – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Global protests and civil unrest in 2020 has renewed the world's interest in addressing injustice due to structural racism and oppression toward Black and Latinx people in all aspects of society, including computing. In this article, we argue that to address and repair the harm created by institutions, policies, and practices that have…

Rankin, Yolanda A.; Thomas, Jakita O.; Erete, Sheena – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Despite the increasing number of women receiving bachelor's degrees in computing (i.e., Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Technology, etc.), a closer look reveals that the percentage of Black women in computing has significantly dropped in recent years, highlighting the underrepresentation of Black women and its negative impact…

Lawlor, Grace; Byrne, Philip; Tangney, Brendan – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
The provision of all-female computer science outreach programmes is a common strategy used to foster greater interest in the subject for high school aged girls. Based on key factors that affect girls' interest in computer science (CS), outreach programmes often share much in their approach. Nonetheless, there is criticism from a research…

Kemp, Peter E. J.; Wong, Billy; Berry, Miles G. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
The change in the English computing curriculum and the shift towards computer science (CS) has been closely observed by other countries. Female participation remains a concern in most jurisdictions, but female attainment in CS is relatively unstudied. Using the English national pupil database, we analyzed all exam results (n = 5,370,064) for…

Weston, Timothy J.; Dubow, Wendy M.; Kaminsky, Alexis – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
While demand for computer science and information technology skills grows, the proportion of women entering computer science (CS) fields has declined. One critical juncture is the transition from high school to college. In our study, we examined factors predicting college persistence in computer science- and technology-related majors from data…

Ross, Monique; Hazari, Zahra; Sonnert, Gerhard; Sadler, Philip – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Computer science (CS) has been identified as one of the fastest-growing professions, with demand for CS professionals far outpacing the supply of CS graduates. The necessity for a trained CS workforce has compelled industry and academia to evaluate strategies for broadening participation in CS. The current literature in CS education emphasizes the…
