Tshukudu, Ethel; Sentance, Sue; Adelakun-Adeyemo, Oluwatoyin; Nyaringita, Brenda; Quille, Keith; Zhong, Ziling – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Motivation: As K-12 computing education becomes more established throughout the world, there is an increasing focus on accessibility for all, whether in a particular country or setting or in areas of the world that may not yet have computing established. This is primarily articulated as an equity issue. The recently developed "capacity…

van der Meulen, Anna; Hartendorp, Mijke; Voorn, Wendy; Hermans, Felienne – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Programming education is strongly emerging in elementary and high school. Diversity and inclusion are important topics, however, insights on suited programming materials for younger learners with visual impairments are lacking. A wide range of programming materials for children exists, diverse in both what is being programmed (output) and how this…

Miedema, Daphne; Fletcher, George; Aivaloglou, Efthimia – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Prior studies in the Computer Science education literature have illustrated that novices make many mistakes in composing SQL queries. Query formulation proves to be difficult for students. Only recently, some headway was made towards understanding why SQL leads to so many mistakes, by uncovering student misconceptions. In this article, we shed new…

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…

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…

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…

Veeragoudar, Sneha; Sullivan, Florence R. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Here, we present the results of a study of in-service teachers' responses to equity-based case study vignettes focused on racialized classroom incidents. This study was conducted in the context of an ongoing research practice partnership aimed at integrating computer science concepts in elementary grades. Our work took place in a public school…

Riese, Emma; Bälter, Olle – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Assessment plays an important role in education and can both guide and motivate learning. Assessment can, however, be carried out with different aims: providing the students with feedback that supports the learning (formative assessment) and judging to which degree the students have fulfilled the intended learning outcomes (summative assessment).…

Lunn, Stephanie; Samary, Maíra Marques; Hambrusch, Susanne; Yadav, Aman – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Computer science education (CSEd) is a growing interdisciplinary area that continues to gain momentum from students, researchers, and educators. Yet, there are few formal programs or degree options for students interested in pursuing graduate work in CSEd. This article explores the existing state of CSEd in the United States (U.S.) through…

Zhou, Ninger; Cao, Yucheng; Jacob, Sharin; Richardson, Debra Jane – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Effective and equitable CS [computer science] teaching is contingent on teachers' robust understanding of equity issues in CS classrooms. To this end, this study examined high school teachers' perceptions of equity during their participation in a CS teacher certificate program over two years. The participants are from various disciplines and from…
