Akdur, Deniz – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Many practitioners might struggle with becoming productive in different software engineering (SE) roles due to misalignment of the skills learnt during the university time with what is expected in the industry. Companies spend significant resources to train the personnel, whose academic backgrounds are not only based on "computing…

Szabo, Claudia; Sheard, Judy – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
The use of established and discipline-specific theories within research and practice is an indication of the maturity of a discipline. With computing education research as a relatively young discipline, there has been recent interest in investigating theories that may prove foundational to work in this area, with discipline-specific theories and…

Draper, Steve; Maguire, Joseph – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
The overall aim of this article is to stimulate discussion about the activities within CER, and to develop a more thoughtful and explicit perspective on the different types of research activity within CER, and their relationships with each other. While theories may be the most valuable outputs of research to those wishing to apply them, for…

Brown, Neil C. C.; Weill-Tessier, Pierre; Sekula, Maksymilian; Costache, Alexandra-Lucia; Kölling, Michael – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Objectives: Java is a popular programming language for use in computing education, but it is difficult to get a wide picture of the issues that it presents for novices; most studies look only at the types or frequency of errors. In this observational study, we aim to learn how novices use different features of the Java language. Participants:…

Malmi, Lauri; Sheard, Judy; Kinnunen, Päivi; Simon; Sinclair, Jane – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Use of theory within a field of research provides the foundation for designing effective research programs and establishing a deeper understanding of the results obtained. This, together with the emergence of domain-specific theory, is often taken as an indicator of the maturity of any research area. This article explores the development and…

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…

McGill, Monica; Snow, Eric; Vaval, Luronne; DeLyser, Leigh Ann; Wortel-London, Stephanie; Thompson, Angelica – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Research Problem: Computer science (CS) education researchers conducting studies that target high school students have likely seen their studies impacted by COVID-19. Interpreting research findings impacted by COVID-19 presents unique challenges that will require a deeper understanding as to how the pandemic has affected underserved and…

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…

Tedre, Matti; Pajunen, John – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
A rich body of empirically grounded results and a solid theory base have often been viewed as signs of a mature discipline. Many disciplines have frequently debated what they should accept as legitimate kinds of theories, the proper roles of theory, and appropriate reference disciplines. Computing education research (CER) in particular has seen a…

Soyka, Chantal; Schaper, Niclas; Bender, Elena; Striewe, Michael; Ullrich, Meike – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Modeling is an integral part of many computing-related disciplines and thus also represents a curricular core component in computing education in tertiary education. Competence models in which modeling is integrated at least to some extent already exist in some of these disciplines. However, for the core component of graphical modeling, a…

Perez, Melissa; Garcia, Patricia – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Norms and values in computing education are constantly changing as dominant narratives about the role of computing in society evolve over time. Within the current evolving landscape of computing education, researchers and practitioners have advocated for ensuring people from all backgrounds, and particularly women, non-binary, and Black,…

Belland, Brian R.; Kim, Chanmin; Zhang, Anna Y.; Lee, Eunseo – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
This article reports the analysis of data from five different studies to identify predictors of preservice, early childhood teachers' views of (a) the nature of coding, (b) integration of coding into preschool classrooms, and (c) relation of coding to fields other than computer science (CS). Significant changes in views of coding were predicted by…

Whalley, Jacqueline; Settle, Amber; Luxton-Reilly, Andrew – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Debugging is a core skill required by programmers, yet we know little about how to effectively teach the process of debugging. The challenges of learning debugging are compounded for novices who lack experience and are still learning the tools they need to program effectively. In this work, we report a case study in which we used a think-aloud…

Parker, Miranda C. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
In the age of computing, there still exist many schools that do not offer computer science courses. The reason can be esoteric to designers of interventions, curricula, and policies. This study aims to answer the research question: "What do school officials perceive as barriers to and supports for offering computer science courses at their…
