Hedayati-Mehdiabadi, Amir – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
The daily influence of new technologies on shaping and reshaping human lives necessitates attention to the ethical development of the future computing workforce. To improve computer science students' ethical decision-making, it is important to know how they make decisions when they face ethical issues. This article contributes to the research and…

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).…

Vrieler, Tina; Salminen-Karlsson, Minna – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
The aim of this conceptual article is to provide a framework and a lens for educators in diversifying and making CS education more inclusive. In this article, we conceptualize the notion of computer science capital (CSC), which extends Bourdieu's sociological theory of capital and Archer et al.'s work on "science capital." The CSC…

Duran, Rodrigo; Zavgorodniaia, Albina; Sorva, Juha – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
One of the most commonly cited theories in computing education research is cognitive load theory (CLT), which explains how learning is affected by the bottleneck of human working memory and how teaching may work around that limitation. The theory has evolved over a number of decades, addressing shortcomings in earlier versions; other issues remain…

Lunn, Stephanie; Samary, Maíra Marques; Hambrusch, Susanne; Yadav, Aman – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Computer science education (CSEd) is a growing interdisciplinary area that continues to gain momentum from students, researchers, and educators. Yet, there are few formal programs or degree options for students interested in pursuing graduate work in CSEd. This article explores the existing state of CSEd in the United States (U.S.) through…

Desportes, Kayla; McDermott, Kathleen; Bergner, Yoav; Payne, William – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Performing arts computing environments have received little attention in the educational sphere; yet, they offer opportunities for learners to validate their efforts, ideas, and skills through showcasing their work in a public-facing performance. In this work, we explore an out-of-school dance and computing educational program run by the…

Michaelis, Joseph E.; Weintrop, David – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Computing is rapidly becoming a critical literacy for succeeding in an increasingly technological world. While the proliferation of programs dedicated to broadening participation in computing increases access, computing education research can benefit from more directly drawing on current interest development theory to improve interventions that…

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…

Neutens, Tom; Coolsaet, Kris; Wyffels, Francis – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
In many countries, computer programming is becoming an integral part of the secondary school curriculum. However, many teachers, especially in the first years of Flemish secondary school, have limited experience with teaching programming. To improve their knowledge about programming, many different types of professional development programs have…

Kang, Jin; Girouard, Audrey – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Objectives: Internships can bring a host of professional and academic benefits to students. Then, how do User Experience (UX) internships influence Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) graduate students' professional and academic growth? What are the challenges experienced by HCI graduate students during internships? We explored these two research…

McDonald, Nora; Akinsiku, Adegboyega; Hunter-Cevera, Jonathan; Sanchez, Maria; Kephart, Kerrie; Berczynski, Mark; Mentis, Helena M. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
We studied the impact of introducing first-year computer science (CS) students to ethical thinking about the social justice impacts of data collection, tracking, bias, internet privacy, and competitive "real world" system design and critique activities. While basic content was consistent for all, one group was involved throughout the…

Kao, Yvonne; Matlen, Bryan; Weintrop, David – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
The 1980s and 1990s saw a robust connection between computer science education and cognitive psychology as researchers worked to understand how students learn to program. More recently, academic disciplines such as science and engineering have begun drawing on cognitive psychology research and theories of learning to create instructional materials…

McGill, Monica M.; Reinking, Anni – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
Problem: K-12 teachers face many challenges when teaching a new subject like computer science (CS). They are often far removed from the research being conducted to identify evidence-driven solutions to these challenges. Likewise, researchers are also often removed from the challenges of classroom practices that teachers face when teaching CS.…

Robins, Anthony V. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
This paper explores a major theoretical framework from psychology, Dual Process Theory (DPT), which has received surprisingly little attention in the computing education literature. DPT postulates the existence of two qualitatively different kinds of cognitive systems, a fast, intuitive "System 1" and a slow, reflective "System…

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…
