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…

Malmi, Lauri; Sheard, Judy; Kinnunen, Päivi; Simon; Sinclair, Jane – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Use of theory within a field of research provides the foundation for designing effective research programs and establishing a deeper understanding of the results obtained. This, together with the emergence of domain-specific theory, is often taken as an indicator of the maturity of any research area. This article explores the development and…

Tedre, Matti; Pajunen, John – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
A rich body of empirically grounded results and a solid theory base have often been viewed as signs of a mature discipline. Many disciplines have frequently debated what they should accept as legitimate kinds of theories, the proper roles of theory, and appropriate reference disciplines. Computing education research (CER) in particular has seen a…

Soyka, Chantal; Schaper, Niclas; Bender, Elena; Striewe, Michael; Ullrich, Meike – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Modeling is an integral part of many computing-related disciplines and thus also represents a curricular core component in computing education in tertiary education. Competence models in which modeling is integrated at least to some extent already exist in some of these disciplines. However, for the core component of graphical modeling, a…

Bendler, Daniel; Felderer, Michael – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Competency models are widely adopted frameworks that are used to improve human resource functions and education. However, the characteristics of competency models related to the information security and cybersecurity domains are not well understood. To bridge this gap, this study investigates the current state of competency models related to the…

Bhagya Munasinghe; Tim Bell; Anthony Robins – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
In learning to program and understanding how a programming language controls a computer, learners develop both insights and misconceptions whilst their mental models are gradually refined. It is important that the learner is able to distinguish the different elements and roles of a computer (compiler, interpreter, memory, etc.), which novice…

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…

Duran, Rodrigo; Sorva, Juha; Seppälä, Otto – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
We propose a framework for identifying, organizing, and communicating learning objectives that involve program semantics. In this framework, detailed learning objectives are written down as rules of program behavior (RPBs). RPBs are teacher-facing statements that describe what needs to be learned about the behavior of a specific sort of programs.…

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…

Luburic, Nikola; Sladic, Goran; Slivka, Jelena; Milosavljevic, Branko – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
With ever-greater reliance of the developed world on information and communication technologies, constructing secure software has become a top priority. To produce secure software, security activities need to be integrated throughout the software development lifecycle. One such activity is security design analysis (SDA), which identifies security…

Lagus, Jarkko; Longi, Krista; Klami, Arto; Hellas, Arto – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2018
The computing education research literature contains a wide variety of methods that can be used to identify students who are either at risk of failing their studies or who could benefit from additional challenges. Many of these are based on machine-learning models that learn to make predictions based on previously observed data. However, in…

Problem: The involvement of external stakeholders in capstone projects and project courses is desirable due to its potential positive effects on the students. Capstone projects particularly profit from the inclusion of an industrial partner to make the project relevant and help students acquire professional skills. In addition, an increasing push…

Many computer science programs have capstone experiences or project courses that allow students to integrate knowledge from the full breadth of their major. Such capstone projects may be student-designed, instructor-designed, designed in conjunction with outside companies, or integrated with ongoing free and open source (FOSS) projects. The…

Gestwicki, Paul; McNely, Brian – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2016
We define and describe the academic studio model for interdisciplinary, undergraduate, project-oriented education. This model brings faculty, students, and community partners together to investigate an openended academic question, and their collaboration yields an original product that represents their inquiry. The academic studio integrates agile…

Largent, David L. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2016
To prepare graduates for today's work environment, they must be immersed in positive (and perhaps negative) small group experiences in their courses, which will in turn provide a basic understanding of how teams form and develop over time. In the fall of 2009, we started exploring how software development teams form and interact in a computer…
