Haldeman, Georgiana; Babes-Vroman Monica; Tjang, Andrew; Nguyen, Thu D. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Autograding systems are being increasingly deployed to meet the challenges of teaching programming at scale. Studies show that formative feedback can greatly help novices learn programming. This work extends an autograder, enabling it to provide formative feedback on programming assignment submissions. Our methodology starts with the design of a…

Bresnihan, Nina; Bray, Aibhín; Fisher, Lorraine; Strong, Glenn; Millwood, Richard; Tangney, Brendan – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
This work is situated in research on Parental Involvement (PI) in Computer Science (CS) Education. While the importance of PI in children's education is well established, most parents have little experience in CS and struggle to facilitate the learning of a child in the area. If PI in CS Education is to happen, then we argue that parents need…

Lishinski, Alex; Yadav, Aman – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Research has repeatedly shown self-efficacy to be associated with course outcomes in CS and across other fields. CS education research has documented this and has developed CS-specific self-efficacy measurement instruments, but to date there have been only a few studies examining interventions intended to improve students' self-efficacy in CS, and…

Saqr, Mohammed; Ng, Kwok; Oyelere, Solomon Sunday; Tedre, Matti – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
The momentum around computational thinking (CT) has kindled a rising wave of research initiatives and scholarly contributions seeking to capitalize on the opportunities that CT could bring. A number of literature reviews have showed a vibrant community of practitioners and a growing number of publications. However, the history and evolution of the…

Bowman, Nicholas A.; Jarratt, Lindsay; Culver, K. C.; Segre, Alberto M. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Active and collaborative learning has shown considerable promise for improving student outcomes and reducing group disparities. As one common form of collaborative learning, pair programming is an adapted work practice implemented widely in higher education computing programs. In the classroom setting, it typically involves two computer science…

Minnes, Mia; Serslev, Sheena Ghanbari; Padilla, Omar – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Summer internships present an opportunity for Computer Science (CS) students to expand and test their skills in "the real world." These multi-faceted experiences call on students to use technical tools and critical thinking in collaboration with others to solve problems. There are many opportunities for learning and growth: which of…

Lukkarinen, Aleksi; Malmi, Lauri; Haaranen, Lassi – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
During the past two decades, "event-driven programming" (EDP) has emerged as a central and almost ubiquitous concept in modern software development: Graphical user interfaces are self-evident in most mobile and web-based applications, as well as in many embedded systems, and they are most often based on reacting to events. To facilitate…

Kim, Han Sung; Kim, Soohwan; Na, Wooyoul; Lee, Woon Jee – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
As Information and Communication Technology (ICT) literacy education has recently shifted to fostering computing thinking ability as well as ICT use, many countries are conducting research on national curriculum and evaluation. In this study, we measured Korean students' ICT literacy levels by using the national measurement tool that assesses…

Oleson, Alannah; Wortzman, Brett; Ko, Amy J. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Design is a distinct discipline with its own practices, tools, professions, and areas of scholarship. However, practitioners from other fields often leverage aspects of design in their own work, leading to subfields like engineering design and architecture design that are neither wholly design nor wholly the intersecting discipline. Similarly,…

Thomas, Paul J.; Patel, Devang; Magana, Alejandra J. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2021
Software modeling is an integral practice for software engineers, especially as the complexity of software solutions increases. Unified Modeling Language (UML) is the industry standard for software modeling. however, it is often used incorrectly and misunderstood by novice software designers. This study is centered around understanding patterns of…

Indriasari, Theresia Devi; Luxton-Reilly, Andrew; Denny, Paul – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Peer review is the standard process within academia for maintaining publication quality, but it is also widely employed in other settings, such as education and industry, for improving work quality and for generating actionable feedback to content authors. For example, in the software industry peer review of program source code--or peer code…

Vandenberg, Jessica; Tsan, Jennifer; Boulden, Danielle; Zakaria, Zarifa; Lynch, Collin; Boyer, Kristy Elizabeth; Wiebe, Eric – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
The language and concepts used by curriculum designers are not always interpreted by children as designers intended. This can be problematic when researchers use self-reported survey instruments in concert with curricula, which often rely on the implicit belief that students' understanding aligns with their own. We report on our refinement of a…

Dou, Remy; Bhutta, Karina; Ross, Monique; Kramer, Laird; Thamotharan, Vishodana – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Like other STEM fields, computer science (CS) lacks representation of minorities, such as Black and Hispanic individuals, both in the number of bachelor's degrees obtained and the number of individuals in the CS workforce. Out-of-school CS programs are often designed with the intent to inspire young people to pursue careers in CS. Much of this…

Taipalus, Toni; Seppänen, Ville – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
Structured Query Language (SQL) skills are crucial in software engineering and computer science. However, teaching SQL effectively requires both pedagogical skill and considerable knowledge of the language. Educators and scholars have proposed numerous considerations for the betterment of SQL education, yet these considerations may be too numerous…

Daleiden, Patrick; Stefik, Andreas; Uesbeck, P. Merlin; Pedersen, Jan – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2020
There are many paradigms available to address the unique and complex problems introduced with parallel programming. These complexities have implications for computer science education as ubiquitous multi-core computers drive the need for programmers to understand parallelism. One major obstacle to student learning of parallel programming is that…
