Ronan, Darcy; Erdil, D. Cenk; Brylow, Dennis – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Instrument development is an important step towards unlocking the analytical power of teacher attitudes and beliefs towards Computer Science (CS). Teacher dispositions have strong empirical and theoretical ties to teacher motivation, professional choices, and classroom practices. To determine consensus desirable attitudes and beliefs, we analyzed…

El-Hamamsy, Laila; Pellet, Jean-Philippe; Roberts, Matthew; Kovacs, Helena; Bruno, Barbara; Zufferey, Jessica Dehler; Mondada, Francesco – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Context: Introducing Computer Science (CS) into formal education can be challenging, notably when considering the numerous stakeholders involved which include the students, teachers, schools, and policy makers. We believe these perspectives should be considered conjointly, which is possible within Research Practice Partnerships (RPPs). RPPs look…

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…

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…

Israel, Maya; Kester, Brittany; Williams, Jessica J.; Ray, Meg J. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Through a mixed-methods approach that utilized teacher surveys and a focus group with computer science (CS) instructional coaches, this study examined elementary teachers' confidence in meeting the needs of students with disabilities, the extent to which the teachers could use the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework in CS education, and…

Vrieler, Tina; Salminen-Karlsson, Minna – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
The aim of this conceptual article is to provide a framework and a lens for educators in diversifying and making CS education more inclusive. In this article, we conceptualize the notion of computer science capital (CSC), which extends Bourdieu's sociological theory of capital and Archer et al.'s work on "science capital." The CSC…

Loksa, Dastyni; Margulieux, Lauren; Becker, Brett A.; Craig, Michelle; Denny, Paul; Pettit, Raymond; Prather, James – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Metacognition and self-regulation are important skills for successful learning and have been discussed and researched extensively in the general education literature for several decades. More recently, there has been growing interest in understanding how metacognitive and self-regulatory skills contribute to student success in the context of…

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…

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…

Bresnihan, Nina; Bray, Aibhín; Fisher, Lorraine; Strong, Glenn; Millwood, Richard; Tangney, Brendan – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
This work is situated in research on Parental Involvement (PI) in Computer Science (CS) Education. While the importance of PI in children's education is well established, most parents have little experience in CS and struggle to facilitate the learning of a child in the area. If PI in CS Education is to happen, then we argue that parents need…

Lishinski, Alex; Yadav, Aman – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Research has repeatedly shown self-efficacy to be associated with course outcomes in CS and across other fields. CS education research has documented this and has developed CS-specific self-efficacy measurement instruments, but to date there have been only a few studies examining interventions intended to improve students' self-efficacy in CS, and…

Saqr, Mohammed; Ng, Kwok; Oyelere, Solomon Sunday; Tedre, Matti – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
The momentum around computational thinking (CT) has kindled a rising wave of research initiatives and scholarly contributions seeking to capitalize on the opportunities that CT could bring. A number of literature reviews have showed a vibrant community of practitioners and a growing number of publications. However, the history and evolution of the…

Zhou, Ninger; Nguyen, Ha; Fischer, Christian; Richardson, Debra; Warschauer, Mark – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Self-efficacy is an important construct for CS teachers' professional development, because it can predict both teaching behaviors as well as student outcomes. Research has shown that teachers' self-efficacy can be as influential as their actual level of knowledge and abilities. However, there has been very limited research on CS teachers'…

Clarke-Midura, Jody; Sun, Chongning; Pantic, Katarina – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
In response to the need to broaden participation in computer science, we designed a summer camp to teach middle-school-aged youth to code apps with MIT App Inventor. For the past four summers, we have observed significant gains in youth's interest and self-efficacy in computer science, after attending our camps. The majority of these youth,…

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…
