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,…

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…

Allison, Jordan – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
As technology and curricula continue to evolve and develop, the prevalence and effectiveness of continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities for computer science teachers is becoming increasingly more important. However, key questions remain about what the characteristics are for effective CPD in this context. Through the presentation…

Hamlen Mansour, Karla; Jackson, Debbie K.; Bievenue, Lisa; Voight, Adam; Sridhar, Nigamanth – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
In a nationwide initiative to increase computer science Education in K-12, many teachers were recruited to CS teaching positions but without adequate preparation, which can lead to lack of confidence and feelings of isolation [35, 54]. In response to these issues, the purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a newly developed…

Kang, Jin; Girouard, Audrey – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Objectives: Internships can bring a host of professional and academic benefits to students. Then, how do User Experience (UX) internships influence Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) graduate students' professional and academic growth? What are the challenges experienced by HCI graduate students during internships? We explored these two research…

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…

Minnes, Mia; Serslev, Sheena Ghanbari; Padilla, Omar – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Summer internships present an opportunity for Computer Science (CS) students to expand and test their skills in "the real world." These multi-faceted experiences call on students to use technical tools and critical thinking in collaboration with others to solve problems. There are many opportunities for learning and growth: which of…

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…

Margulieux, Lauren E.; Morrison, Brian B.; Franke, Baker; Ramilison, Harivololona – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
The subgoal learning framework has improved performance for novice programmers in higher education, but it has only started to be applied and studied in K-12 (primary/secondary). Programming education in K-12 is growing, and many international initiatives are attempting to increase participation, including curricular initiatives like Computer…

Celis Rangel, Jakeline G.; King, Melissa; Muldner, Kasia – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Learning to program requires perseverance, practice, and the mindset that programming skills are improved through these activities (i.e., that everyone has the potential to become good at programming). In contrast to an entity mindset, individuals with an incremental mindset believe that ability is malleable and can be improved with effort. Prior…

Clarke-Midura, Jody; Sun, Chongning; Pantic, Katarina; Poole, Frederick J.; Allan, Vicki – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Our work is situated in research on Computer Science (CS) learning in informal learning environments and literature on the factors that influence girls to enter CS. In this article, we outline design choices around the creation of a summer programming camp for middle school youth. In addition, we describe a near-peer mentoring model we used that…

Johnson, Philip – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Modern web application development provides an attractive application area for introductory software engineering education, as students have direct experience with the domain and it provides them with the potential to gain practical, real-world skills. Achieving this potential requires the development of competency with a multiple component tech…

Lakanen, Antti-Jussi; Kärkkäinen, Tommi – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Short-term outreach interventions are conducted to raise young students' awareness of the computer science (CS) field. Typically, these interventions are targeted at K--12 students, attempting to encourage them to study CS in higher education. This study is based on a series of extra-curricular outreach events that introduced students to the…

Marín, B.; Frez, J.; Cruz-Lemus, J.; Genero, M. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Context: Programming courses are compulsory for most engineering degrees, but students' performance on these courses is often not as good as expected. Programming is difficult for students to learn, given that it includes a lot of new, complex, and abstract topics. All of this has led experts to the conclusion that new teaching techniques are…

Bosnic, Ivana; Cavrak, Igor; Žagar, Mario – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Various software engineering (SE) curricula in higher education have started including courses on global software engineering (GSE), carried out as internationally distributed project-based courses. These courses, known for their closeness to "real-world" work experience, emphasize the importance of involving industry partners as…
