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…

Brennan, Karen; Blum-Smith, Sarah; Peters, Laura; Kang, Jane – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Student-directed projects--projects in which students have individual control over what they create and how to create it--are a promising practice for supporting the development of conceptual understanding and personal interest in K-12 computer science classrooms. In this article, we explore a central (and perhaps counterintuitive) design…

Hardin, Caroline D. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Hackathons, the time-bound collaborative project-based computer science competitions increasingly popular with computer science students, are one of the largest-scale innovations in computing education of the past decade. This research examined three hackathons and 46,500 surveys to find that educational benefits were unequal between genders in…

Ting, Ying; Brockman, Morgan L.; Patil, Sameer – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Nearly all software built today impinges upon end-user privacy and needs to comply with relevant regulations. Therefore, there have been increasing calls for integrating considerations of compliance with privacy regulations throughout the software engineering lifecycle. However, software engineers are typically trained in the technical fields and…

Domínguez, César; Jaime, Arturo; García-Izquierdo, Francisco José; Olarte, Juan José – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
A capstone project is an extensive learning experience traditionally developed during a student's final academic year. Assessing such a complex assignment involves several challenges and is usually based upon the evaluations of at least two different people: the capstone project advisor, and one or more other assessors. Quantitative studies…

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…

Sánchez, Ana; Domínguez, César; Blanco, Jose Miguel; Jaime, Arturo – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
It is important for both computer science academics and students to clearly comprehend the differences between academic and professional perspectives in terms of assessing a deliverable. It is especially interesting to determine whether the aspects deemed important to evaluate by a computer science expert are the same as those established by…

Bosnic, Ivana; Ciccozzi, Federico; Crnkovic, Ivica; Cavrak, Igor; Di Nitto, Elisabetta; Mirandola, Raffaela; Žagar, Mario – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Teaching Distributed Software Development with real distributed settings is a challenging and rewarding task. Distributed courses are idiosyncratically more challenging than standard local courses. We have experienced this during our distributed course, which has been run for 14 consecutive years. In this article, we present and analyze the…

Isomöttönen, Ville; Daniels, Mats; Cajander, Åsa; Pears, Arnold; Mcdermott, Roger – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Literature on global employability signifies "enabling" learning environments where students encounter ill-formed and open-ended problems and are required to adapt and be creative. Varying forms of "projects," co-located and distributed, have populated computing curricula for decades and are generally deemed an answer to this…

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…

Billingsley, William; Torbay, Rosemary; Fletcher, Peter R.; Thomas, Richard N.; Steel, Jim R. H.; Süß, Jörn Guy – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
One of the challenges of global software engineering courses is to bring the practices and experience of large geographically distributed teams into the local and time-limited environment of a classroom. Over the last 6 years, an on-campus studio course for software engineering has been developed at the University of Queensland (UQ) that places…

Saltz, Jeffrey S.; Heckman, Robert R. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2018
This article reports on a sequential mixed-methods research study, which compared different approaches on how to guide students through a semester-long data science project. Four different methodologies, ranging from a traditional "just assign some intermediate milestones" to other more Agile methodologies, were first compared via a…

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…

Braught, Grant; MacCormick, John; Bowring, James; Burke, Quinn; Cutler, Barbara; Goldschmidt, David; Krishnamoorthy, Mukkai; Turner, Wesley; Huss-Lederman, Steven; Mackellar, Bonnie; Tucker, Allen – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2018
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…
