Judson, Eugene; Glassmeyer, Kristi – Computers in the Schools, 2020
In 37 states, an accepted computer science course may qualify or "flex" as a high school graduation requirement in lieu of a traditional requirement, such as mathematics. Applying a first- and second-order barriers framework (i.e., tangible impediments and personal beliefs), we examined views of 60 high school administrators. The…

Moro, Sérgio; Martins, António; Ramos, Pedro; Esmerado, Joaquim; Costa, Joana Martinho; Almeida, Daniela – Computers in the Schools, 2020
Many university programs include Microsoft Excel courses given their value as a scientific and technical tool. However, evaluating what is effectively learned by students is a challenging task. Considering multiple-choice written exams are a standard evaluation format, this study aimed to uncover the features influencing students' success in…

Powers, Jillian R.; Musgrove, Ann T. – Computers in the Schools, 2020
This study examined the role that planning time plays in teachers' adoption of 1:1 computing for individualized instruction. In particular, the research explored whether the availability of time to plan for 1:1 computing served as an external variable as described by Davis, Bagozzi, and Warshaw (1989) in the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). The…

Chen, Li-Ting; Liu, Leping – Computers in the Schools, 2020
Literature has suggested numerous benefits of online learning. In this study, we focused on asynchronous online discussion in higher education. We defined effective online discussions as making social presence known and conducting multidimensional discussions. Three dimensions were used to define multidimensional discussions: time, learning space,…

Baek, Youngkyun; Min, Ellen; Yun, Seongchul – Computers in the Schools, 2020
This study explored the educational potential of Minecraft, which has been widely used since its first release in 2009. Articles about Minecraft were searched for in ProQuest. Data were gathered from 28 articles that were indicative of three categories: integration into curriculum; student engagement, interest, and enthusiasm; and knowledge and…

Lee, Ahlam – Computers in the Schools, 2020
Concerning the underrepresentation of female students in computer science (CS) classes at the K-12 level and math-intensive STEM fields, this study investigated the relationship between female students earning less credits in CS courses during high school and their STEM major choices. Data were drawn from a nationally representative sample of U.S.…

Sutter, Claudia C.; Campbell, Laurie O.; Lambie, Glenn W. – Computers in the Schools, 2020
The present study investigated the predictability of a computer-adaptive, curriculum-based reading assessment for measuring second-grade students' overall and comprehension reading achievement on a standardized reading achievement test. Specifically, second-grade student scores (N = 428) of the Istation's Indicators of Progress for Early Reading…

Djamàa, Sara – Computers in the Schools, 2020
Data from an EFL (English as a foreign language) graduate research methods course (N = 384) was used to assess the effect of flipped instruction on students' exam performance over one academic year. Participants, who were enrolled in two different universities in Algeria, were randomly assigned to a flipped course (n = 192) and a conventional…

Zeynivandnezhad, Fereshteh; Mousavi, Amin; Kotabe, Hiroki – Computers in the Schools, 2020
The learning process of constructing concepts in mathematics can be supported by visualization in graphical, numerical, and symbolic representations. However, previous research suggests that students have not fully taken advantage of the opportunities provided by these technologies. Two key factors, including mathematics conception and mathematics…
