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…

Pelánek, Radek; Effenberger, Tomáš – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
To provide practice and assessment of computational thinking, we need specific problems students can solve. There are many such problems, but they are hard to find. Learning environments and assessments often use only specific types of problems and thus do not cover computational thinking in its whole scope. We provide an extensive catalog of…

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…

Bendler, Daniel; Felderer, Michael – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Competency models are widely adopted frameworks that are used to improve human resource functions and education. However, the characteristics of competency models related to the information security and cybersecurity domains are not well understood. To bridge this gap, this study investigates the current state of competency models related to the…

Vizcaíno, Aurora; García, Félix O.; Menéndez, Víctor Hugo; Manjavacas, Antonio; Márquez, Rubén; Molina, Marta – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Project managers tend to confront multiple challenges in Global Software Development (GSD), including misunderstandings about the project requirements, complex estimations of costs, risks, and efforts, along with increases in task allocation and a lack of coordination. "Soft skills" play a fundamental role in solving these challenges, as…

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…

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…

Abdulhadi Shoufan – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
With the immense interest in ChatGPT worldwide, education has seen a mix of both excitement and skepticism. To properly evaluate its impact on education, it is crucial to understand how far it can help students without prior knowledge answer assessment questions. This study aims to address this question as well as the impact of the question type.…
