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'…

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…

Prvan, Marina; Ožegovic, Julije – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
This article provides a survey of methods and paradigms for teaching Computer Networks (CN). Since the theoretical concepts are rather abstract in this subject, and students often find them too technical and difficult to understand, many authors attempt to answer the question on how to improve students' motivation and interest for the complex…

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…

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,…

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…

Daleiden, Patrick; Stefik, Andreas M.; Uesbeck, Phillip Merlin – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Coprocessor architectures in High Performance Computing are prevalent in today's scientific computing clusters and require specialized knowledge for proper utilization. Various alternative paradigms for parallel and offload computation exist, but little is known about the human factors impacts of using the different paradigms. With computer…

Jayathirtha, Gayithri; Kafai, Yasmin B. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Electronic textiles, which integrate computation with fabrics through a redesigned interface of microcontrollers, sensors, and actuators, have expanded possibilities not only for engineering, fashion, and human-computer interaction but also for computer science education itself. While individual studies involving electronic textiles have shown…

Armstrong, Miriam E.; Jones, Keith S.; Namin, Akbar Siami; Newton, David C. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
More specialized cybersecurity education programs are needed to address workforce needs, but it is unclear which knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) fulfil industry needs. We interviewed 48 professionals within four cyber defense specialty areas: (1) Cyber Network Defense Analysis, (2) Cyber Network Defense Infrastructure Support, (3) Incident…

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…

Kemp, Peter E. J.; Wong, Billy; Berry, Miles G. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
The change in the English computing curriculum and the shift towards computer science (CS) has been closely observed by other countries. Female participation remains a concern in most jurisdictions, but female attainment in CS is relatively unstudied. Using the English national pupil database, we analyzed all exam results (n = 5,370,064) for…

Albluwi, Ibrahim – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
This article is a systematic review of work in the computing education literature on plagiarism. The goal of the review is to summarize the main results found in the literature and highlight areas that need further work. Despite the the large body of work on plagiarism, no systematic reviews have been published so far. The reviewed papers were…

Weintrop, David; Coenraad, Merijke; Palmer, Jen; Franklin, Diana – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
In response to the growing call to bring the powerful ideas of computer science to all learners, education decision makers, including teachers and administrators, are tasked with making consequential decisions on what curricula to use. Often, these decision makers have not been trained in computer science and are unfamiliar with the concepts…

Garousi, V.; Giray, Görkem; Tüzün, Eray – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Context: Knowledge level and productivity of the software engineering (SE) workforce are the subject of regular discussions among practitioners, educators, and researchers. There have been many efforts to measure and improve the knowledge gap between SE education and industrial needs. Objective: Although the existing efforts for aligning SE…

Weston, Timothy J.; Dubow, Wendy M.; Kaminsky, Alexis – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
While demand for computer science and information technology skills grows, the proportion of women entering computer science (CS) fields has declined. One critical juncture is the transition from high school to college. In our study, we examined factors predicting college persistence in computer science- and technology-related majors from data…
