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,…

El-Hamamsy, Laila; Bruno, Barbara; Avry, Sunny; Chessel-Lazzarotto, Frédérique; Dehler Zufferey, Jessica; Mondada, Francesco – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Context: With the introduction of Computer Science (CS) into curricula worldwide, teachers' adoption of CS pedagogical content is essential to ensure the long-term success of reform initiatives. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programs play a key role in this process. Unfortunately, adoption is seldom evaluated in CS-CPDs or CPDs in…

Kim, Han Sung; Kim, Soohwan; Na, Wooyoul; Lee, Woon Jee – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
As Information and Communication Technology (ICT) literacy education has recently shifted to fostering computing thinking ability as well as ICT use, many countries are conducting research on national curriculum and evaluation. In this study, we measured Korean students' ICT literacy levels by using the national measurement tool that assesses…

Mahadeo, Jonathan; Hazari, Zahra; Potvin, Geoff – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
This paper expands on knowledge of computing identity by building on what is known about prior identity models in science and mathematics education. The model theorizes three primary sub-constructs that contribute to the development of a computing identity: belief in one's performance/competence, interest, and recognition in computing. Drawing on…

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…

Rücker, Michael T.; van Joolingen, Wouter R.; Pinkwart, Niels – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Enabling students to recognize and evaluate the ubiquitous impact of computing technology on society is an internationally proclaimed goal of a K-12 computing education. To that end, students need to actually engage with their computing knowledge in concrete everyday situations. From the perspectives of learning transfer and variation theory, we…

Crawford, Chris S.; Gilbert, Juan E. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) hardware is becoming more affordable and accessible. However, there is limited work investigating ways to design software that broadens participation with BCI technology. In this article, we present a block-based programming environment designed to assist novice programmers with creating BCI applications. We also…

Frezza, S.; Daniels, M.; Wilkin, A. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
This research aimed at evaluating the development and use of low-cost affective domain assessment instruments, culminating with personal and group characterization of representative global information technology (IT) professional values. Values and valuing are a compelling component of Bloom's affective domain of learning for engineering…

Kori, Külli; Pedaste, Margus; Must, Olev – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2018
Low retention rates in higher education Information Technology (IT) studies have led to an unmet demand for IT specialists. Therefore, universities need to apply interventions to increase retention rates and provide the labor market with more IT graduates. However, students with different characteristics may need different types of interventions.…

Outlay, Christina N.; Platt, Alana J.; Conroy, Kacie – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2017
The dearth of women choosing information technology (IT) careers has been identified as a national problem in the United States. Efforts have been made to combat this by educating girls at a young age about technology. Recent research demonstrates that exposure to technology is insufficient to change young girls' attitudes towards IT careers and…

Luse, Andy; Rursch, Julie A.; Jacobson, Doug – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2014
In the United States, the number of students entering into and completing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) areas has declined significantly over the past decade. Although modest increases have been shown in enrollments in computer-related majors in the past 4 years, the prediction is that even in 3 to 4 years…

Khenner, Evgeniy; Semakin, Igor – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2014
This article deals with some aspects of studying Informatics in Russian schools. Those aspects are part of the "third dimension" of the Darmstadt model (they are also projected on the other two dimensions of this model) and include evolution of the subject, regulatory norms conforming to the Federal Educational Standards, the learning…

Baron, Georges-Louis; Drot-Delange, Beatrice; Grandbastien, Monique; Tort, Françoise – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2014
Computer science as a school subject in France is characterized by a succession of promising starts that have not yet been transformed into perennial solutions. The main goal of this article is to analyze this complex situation from a historical perspective, and describe the current rebirth of an optional Computer Science course in the last year…
