Hsu, Hui Ching Kayla; Memon, Nasir D. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
The necessity for a steady STEM workforce has prompted academia to develop strategies to encourage people of diverse backgrounds to enter the STEM fields. A bridge program, also known as a conversion program, offers alternative pathways for individuals who have no prior computing education to receive the education that can help in developing their…

Seo, Hyunjin; Altschwager, Darcey; Choi, Baekyoung; Song, Sejun; Britton, Hannah; Ramaswamy, Megha; Schuster, Bernard; Ault, Marilyn; Ayinala, Kaushik; Zaman, Rafida; Tihen, Ben; Yenugu, Lohitha – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
As society increasingly relies on digital technologies in many different aspects, those who lack relevant access and skills are lagging increasingly behind. Among the underserved groups disproportionately affected by the digital divide are women who are transitioning from incarceration and seeking to reenter the workforce outside the carceral…

Lunn, Stephanie; Zahedi, Leila; Ross, Monique; Ohland, Matthew W. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Although computing occupations have some of the greatest projected growth rates, there remains a deficit of graduates in these fields. The struggle to engage enough students to meet demands is particularly pronounced for groups already underrepresented in computing, specifically, individuals that self-identify as a woman, or as Black,…

Hardin, Caroline D. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Hackathons, the time-bound collaborative project-based computer science competitions increasingly popular with computer science students, are one of the largest-scale innovations in computing education of the past decade. This research examined three hackathons and 46,500 surveys to find that educational benefits were unequal between genders in…

Ryoo, Jean J.; Morris, Alicia; Margolis, Jane – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
The Computer Science for All movement is bringing CS to K-12 classrooms across the nation. At the same time, new technologies created by computer scientists have been reproducing existing inequities that directly impact today's youth, while being "promoted and perceived as more objective or progressive than the discriminatory systems of a…

Arawjo, Ian; Mogos, Ariam – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Even in the turn toward justice-oriented pedagogy, computing education tends to overlook the quality of intergroup relationships, which risks entrenching division. In this article, we establish an intercultural approach to computing education, informed by intercultural and peace education, prejudice reduction, and the sociology of racism and…

Vogel, Sara – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Critical computing approaches to K-12 computer science education aim to promote justice in computing and the wider world. Despite being intertwined with inequitable power dynamics in computing, issues of linguistic (in)justice have received less attention in critical computing. In this article, I draw on theoretical ideas from sociolinguistics and…

Erete, Sheena; Thomas, Karla; Nacu, Denise; Dickinson, Jessa; Thompson, Naomi; Pinkard, Nichole – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Global protests and civil unrest in 2020 has renewed the world's interest in addressing injustice due to structural racism and oppression toward Black and Latinx people in all aspects of society, including computing. In this article, we argue that to address and repair the harm created by institutions, policies, and practices that have…

Rankin, Yolanda A.; Thomas, Jakita O.; Erete, Sheena – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Despite the increasing number of women receiving bachelor's degrees in computing (i.e., Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Technology, etc.), a closer look reveals that the percentage of Black women in computing has significantly dropped in recent years, highlighting the underrepresentation of Black women and its negative impact…

Eglash, Ron; Bennett, Audrey; Cooke, Laquana; Babbitt, William; Lachney, Michael – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Students' lives, both in and out of school, are full of different forms of value. Wealthy students enjoy value in the form of financial capital; their fit to hegemonic social practices; excellent health care and so on. Low-income students, especially those from African American, Native American, and Latinx communities, often lack access to those…

Ting, Ying; Brockman, Morgan L.; Patil, Sameer – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Nearly all software built today impinges upon end-user privacy and needs to comply with relevant regulations. Therefore, there have been increasing calls for integrating considerations of compliance with privacy regulations throughout the software engineering lifecycle. However, software engineers are typically trained in the technical fields and…

Duran, Rodrigo; Sorva, Juha; Seppälä, Otto – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
We propose a framework for identifying, organizing, and communicating learning objectives that involve program semantics. In this framework, detailed learning objectives are written down as rules of program behavior (RPBs). RPBs are teacher-facing statements that describe what needs to be learned about the behavior of a specific sort of programs.…

Phelps, David; Santo, Rafi – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Computer Science education (CSed) often aims to position youth as designers, creators, and those with a voice in their world. But do youth have opportunities to design, create, and have voice around the shape of their CSed learning experiences? In this study, we explore ways that school districts engage youth to contribute to the shaping and…

Aivaloglou, Efthimia; van der Meulen, Anna – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Courses in computer science curricula often involve group programming assignments. Instructors are required to take several decisions on assignment setup and monitoring, team formation policies, and grading systems. Group programming projects provide unique monitoring opportunities due to the availability of both product and process data, as well…

Bellino, Alessio; Herskovic, Valeria; Hund, Michael; Munoz-Gama, Jorge – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
A common belief among students is that computing is a boring subject that lacks a connection to the real world. The first class (one 80-minute session) in an introductory computer science course may be an appropriate instance to combat such a belief. Previous studies have used course-wide interventions, e.g., games and physical/tangible devices to…
