Deepti Tagare – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Background and Objective: Teacher assessment research suggests that teachers have good conceptual understanding of CT. However, to model CT-based problem-solving in their classrooms, teachers need to develop the ability to recognize when and how to apply CT skills. Does existing professional development (PD) equip teachers to know when and how to…

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…

Matthieu Branthôme – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
This article reports on a design-based research study centered on the conception and the assessment of the "Pyrates" application. This online serious game aims at introducing Python programming to K-12 students while easing the transition from block-based to text-based languages. After we present the various aspects underlying the…

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…

Tshukudu, Ethel; Sentance, Sue; Adelakun-Adeyemo, Oluwatoyin; Nyaringita, Brenda; Quille, Keith; Zhong, Ziling – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Motivation: As K-12 computing education becomes more established throughout the world, there is an increasing focus on accessibility for all, whether in a particular country or setting or in areas of the world that may not yet have computing established. This is primarily articulated as an equity issue. The recently developed "capacity…

van der Meulen, Anna; Hartendorp, Mijke; Voorn, Wendy; Hermans, Felienne – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Programming education is strongly emerging in elementary and high school. Diversity and inclusion are important topics, however, insights on suited programming materials for younger learners with visual impairments are lacking. A wide range of programming materials for children exists, diverse in both what is being programmed (output) and how this…

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…

Ramon Lawrence; Sarah Foss; Tatiana Urazova – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Objectives: Automatic assessment systems are widely used to provide rapid feedback for students and reduce grading time. Despite the benefits of increased efficiency and improved pedagogical outcomes, an ongoing challenge is mitigating poor student behaviors when interacting with automatic assessment systems including numerous submissions,…

Rodrigo Duran; Silvia Amélia Bim; Itana Gimenes; Leila Ribeiro; Ronaldo Celso Messias Correia – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
"Motivation": Enrollments in Brazilian computing degrees are at an all-time high, but graduation numbers have not increased at the same rate. Moreover, enrollment growth has mainly attracted male students, steadily expanding the gender gap in Brazilian computing programs. Such high attrition rates have a great economic impact and may…

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…

Arif Rachmatullah; Jessica Vandenberg; Sein Shin; Eric Wiebe – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
The current study compared American, Korean, and Indonesian middle and high school students' CS attitudes. Concurrently, this study also examined whether the items in the CS attitudes scale exhibit country and gender measurement biases. We gathered data on CS attitudes from middle and high school students in the US, Korea, and Indonesia. The…

Riese, Emma; Bälter, Olle – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Assessment plays an important role in education and can both guide and motivate learning. Assessment can, however, be carried out with different aims: providing the students with feedback that supports the learning (formative assessment) and judging to which degree the students have fulfilled the intended learning outcomes (summative assessment).…

Neutens, Tom; Coolsaet, Kris; Wyffels, Francis – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
In many countries, computer programming is becoming an integral part of the secondary school curriculum. However, many teachers, especially in the first years of Flemish secondary school, have limited experience with teaching programming. To improve their knowledge about programming, many different types of professional development programs have…

Lai, Rina P. Y. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Computational Thinking (CT), entailing both domain-general and domain-specific skills, is a competency fundamental to computing education and beyond. However, as a cross-domain competency, appropriate assessment design and method remain equivocal. Indeed, the majority of the existing assessments have a predominant focus on measuring programming…
