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,…

Stephanie Jill Lunn; Ellen Zerbe; Monique Ross – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2024
Although there is a great demand for graduates in computing fields, companies frequently struggle to find enough workers. They may also grapple with obtaining racial, ethnic, and gender diversity in representation. It has been suggested that the hiring process further contributes to these inequities. This study examined undergraduate computing…

Heather Killen; Merijke Coenraad; Virginia Byrne; Lautaro Cabrera; Kelly Mills; Diane Jass Ketelhut; Jandelyn D. Plane – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Computational thinking (CT) is playing an increasingly relevant role within disciplinary teaching in elementary school, particularly in science. However, many teachers are unfamiliar with CT, either because their education occurred before the popularization of CT or because CT instruction was not included in their pre-service coursework. For these…

Alvine B. Belle; Callum Sutherland; Opeyemi O. Adesina; Sègla Kpodjedo; Nathanael Ojong; Lisa Cole – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Background: People who are racialized, gendered, or otherwise minoritized are underrepresented in computing professions in North America. This is reflected in undergraduate computer science (CS) programs, in which students from marginalized backgrounds continue to experience inequities that do not typically affect White cis-men. This is especially…

Abraham E. Flanigan; Markeya S. Peteranetz; Duane F. Shell; Leen-Kiat Soh – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Objectives: Although prior research has uncovered shifts in computer science (CS) students' implicit beliefs about the nature of their intelligence across time, little research has investigated the factors contributing to these changes. To address this gap, two studies were conducted in which the relationship between ineffective self-regulation of…

Christopher Hundhausen; Phill Conrad; Olusola Adesope; Ahsun Tariq – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Assessing team software development projects is notoriously difficult and typically based on subjective metrics. To help make assessments more rigorous, we conducted an empirical study to explore relationships between subjective metrics based on peer and instructor assessments, and objective metrics based on GitHub and chat data. We studied 23…

Olivares, Daniel; Hundhausen, Christopher; Ray, Namrata – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
As in other STEM disciplines, early computing courses tend to stress individual assignments and discourage collaboration. This can lead to negative learning experiences that compel some students to give up. According to social learning theory, one way to improve students' learning experiences is to help them form and participate actively in…

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).…

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…

Lee, Lina; Latulipe, Celine; Frevert, Tonya – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Helping students learn to identify and respond to situations involving discrimination is important, especially in fields like Computer Science where there is evidence of an unwelcoming climate that disproportionately drives underrepresented students out of the field. While students should not be considered responsible for fixing issues around…

Flanigan, Abraham E.; Peteranetz, Markeya S.; Shell, Duane F.; Soh, Leen-Kiat – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Two studies investigated change in computer science (CS) students' implicit intelligence beliefs. Across both studies, we found that the strength of incremental and entity beliefs changed across time. In Study 1, we found that incremental beliefs decreased and entity beliefs increased across the semester. Change in implicit intelligence beliefs…

Sharmin, Sadia – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Computer science is a fast-growing field in today's digitized age, and working in this industry often requires creativity and innovative thought. An issue within computer science education, however, is that large introductory programming courses often involve little opportunity for creative thinking within coursework. The undergraduate…

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…

Bowman, Nicholas A.; Jarratt, Lindsay; Culver, K. C.; Segre, Alberto M. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Active and collaborative learning has shown considerable promise for improving student outcomes and reducing group disparities. As one common form of collaborative learning, pair programming is an adapted work practice implemented widely in higher education computing programs. In the classroom setting, it typically involves two computer science…

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…
