Novak, Matija; Joy, Mike; Kermek, Dragutin – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Teachers deal with plagiarism on a regular basis, so they try to prevent and detect plagiarism, a task that is complicated by the large size of some classes. Students who cheat often try to hide their plagiarism (obfuscate), and many different similarity detection engines (often called plagiarism detection tools) have been built to help teachers.…

Domínguez, César; Jaime, Arturo; Heras, Jónathan; García-Izquierdo, Francisco J. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
This study analyzes the impact of adding a review exercises module to an online tool used in a software engineering degree program. The objective of the module is to promote students' self-learning effort to improve their performance. We also intend to determine if this new feature has any effect on the amount of code copies detected in lab…

McCall, Davin; Kölling, Michael – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
The types of programming errors that novice programmers make and struggle to resolve have long been of interest to researchers. Various past studies have analyzed the frequency of compiler diagnostic messages. This information, however, does not have a direct correlation to the types of errors students make, due to the inaccuracy and imprecision…

Miller, Craig S.; Settle, Amber – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
We investigate conditions in which novices make some reference errors when programming. We asked students from introductory programming courses to perform a simple code-writing task that required constructing references to objects and their attributes. By experimentally manipulating the nature of the attributes in the tasks, from identifying…

Johnson, Philip – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Modern web application development provides an attractive application area for introductory software engineering education, as students have direct experience with the domain and it provides them with the potential to gain practical, real-world skills. Achieving this potential requires the development of competency with a multiple component tech…

Yeomans, Lucy; Zschaler, Steffen; Coate, Kelly – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Programming skills are an increasingly desirable asset across disciplines; however, learning to program continues to be difficult for many students. To improve pedagogy, we need to better understand the concepts that students find difficult and which have the biggest impact on their learning. Threshold-concept theory provides a potential lens on…

Richard, Gabriela T.; Giri, Sagun – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
This article proposes and explores the kinds of computational thinking, creative practices, design activities, and inclusive learning opportunities provided to diverse high school youth when designing integrated systems through simultaneously physically and digitally responsive wearable games and systems. Previous work in this area, conducted by…

Hosseini, Hadi; Hartt, Maxwell; Mostafapour, Mehrnaz – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Game-based learning has received significant attention in educational pedagogy as an effective way of increasing student motivation and engagement. The majority of the work in this area has been focused on digital games or games involving technology. We focus on the use of traditional game design in improving student engagement and perception of…

Denner, Jill; Campe, Shannon; Werner, Linda – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
It is widely believed that there are educational benefits to making computer games, but there is no systematic review of research on this topic. This article describes a meta-synthesis of research on children designing and programming computer games that investigates the extent to which there is evidence of benefits for computer science learning…

Gretter, Sarah; Yadav, Aman; Sands, Phil; Hambrusch, Susanne – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
The current efforts to expand computer science (CS) education in K-12 schools, such as the "CS for All" initiative, highlight the need for all students to get an opportunity to study computing. However, as recent research has shown, diversity in computing at the K-12 level remains problematic, and additional research is needed to look at…

Saltz, Jeffrey; Skirpan, Michael; Fiesler, Casey; Gorelick, Micha; Yeh, Tom; Heckman, Robert; Dewar, Neil; Beard, Nathan – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
This article establishes and addresses opportunities for ethics integration into Machine-learning (ML) courses. Following a survey of the history of computing ethics and the current need for ethical consideration within ML, we consider the current state of ML ethics education via an exploratory analysis of course syllabi in computing programs. The…

Lakanen, Antti-Jussi; Kärkkäinen, Tommi – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Short-term outreach interventions are conducted to raise young students' awareness of the computer science (CS) field. Typically, these interventions are targeted at K--12 students, attempting to encourage them to study CS in higher education. This study is based on a series of extra-curricular outreach events that introduced students to the…

Yadav, Aman; Berges, Marc – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
Computer science education efforts are expanding across the globe to equip students with the necessary computing skills for today's digital world. However, preparing students to become literate in computing activities requires the training of tens of thousands of teachers in computer science. The discrepancy between student needs and teacher…

Fiebrink, Rebecca – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
This article aims to lay a foundation for the research and practice of machine learning education for creative practitioners. It begins by arguing that it is important to teach machine learning to creative practitioners and to conduct research about this teaching, drawing on related work in creative machine learning, creative computing education,…

Liao, Soohyun Nam; Zingaro, Daniel; Thai, Kevin; Alvarado, Christine; Griswold, William G.; Porter, Leo – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2019
As enrollments and class sizes in postsecondary institutions have increased, instructors have sought automated and lightweight means to identify students who are at risk of performing poorly in a course. This identification must be performed early enough in the term to allow instructors to assist those students before they fall irreparably behind.…
