Carlson, Charles; Peterson, Garrett; Day, Dwight – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2020
Contribution: Portable learning instrumentation has become common in university classrooms and laboratories, but few publications assess the effects of these technologies on student retention. This paper addresses this under-researched connection between the use of portable learning technologies, incorporated into an Introduction to Computer…

Redondo, Jose Manuel – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper describes a highly flexible design for a master's-level server administration course that uses updated technologies, addresses the most important course design challenges and extracts useful feedback from student work. The main contribution of this design is eliminating the self-regulation challenge students encounter in…

Yang, Shufan; Newman, Robert – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: An original application of individual rotation to blended learning, which mixes e-learning, discussion groups (seminars), practical laboratory work, and self-motivated tasks called "mini-projects." Background: In examining the changing practices toward students' transferable skills in higher education, current teaching…

Batanero, Concha; de-Marcos, Luis; Holvikivi, Jaana; Hilera, Jose Ramon; Oton, Salvador – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: A redesign of the Moodle platform to adapt digital educational content [learning objects (LOs)] to the specific needs of students with disabilities. The approach, extendable to a range of disciplines, was empirically tested with blind and deaf engineering students. Background: Previous studies identified difficulties that blind and…

Lin, Che-Chern; Liu, Zi-Cheng; Chang, Chih-Lin; Lin, Yu-Wen – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: An online genetic algorithm-based remedial learning system is presented in order to strengthen students' understanding of object-oriented programming (OOP) concepts by tailoring personalized learning materials according to each student's strengths and weaknesses. Background: Prior studies on computer programming education have…

Cutumisu, Maria; Guo, Qi – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper employs the automatic scoring of short essays as a novel way to determine pre-service teachers' knowledge of and attitudes toward computational thinking (CT) from their written reflections. Implications about designing CT courses for pre-service teachers are discussed. Background: CT is an essential 21st-century competency…

Medeiros, Rodrigo Pessoa; Ramalho, Geber Lisboa; Falcão, Taciana Pontual – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper adds to the results of previous systematic literature reviews by addressing a more contemporary context of introductory programming. It proposes a categorization of introductory programming challenges, and highlights key issues for a research roadmap on introductory programming learning and teaching in higher education.…

Tamburri, Damian Andrew; Casale, Giuliano – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper quantifies the phenomenon of more versus better research output in computing research education and elaborates on how the organizational variable known as cognitive distance plays a fundamental role in mediating such more versus better research output relation. Background: To improve the current educational system,…

Sapounidis, Theodosios; Stamovlasis, Dimitrios; Demetriadis, Stavros – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: Prior studies on tangible versus graphical user interfaces have reported controversial findings concerning children's preferences. This paper shows that their preference profiles in the domain of introductory programming are associated with gender and age for both interfaces. Background: The relevant literature mainly consists of…

Rohde, Jacqueline; Musselman, Lisa; Benedict, Brianna; Verdin, Dina; Godwin, Allison; Kirn, Adam; Benson, Lisa; Potvin, Geoff – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper found that design experiences can foster engineering identity and belongingness for early career electrical and computer engineering students. Students had different interpretations of what it meant to be an engineer (identity) and their belongingness in engineering. This paper provides novel insights into how students may…

Rennick, Christopher; Hulls, Carol C. W.; McKay, Kenneth N. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: A semester-long, open-ended design project was implemented to promote intellectual development of first-year students while reinforcing event-driven/procedural programming principles. This paper describes this approach, and an evaluation strategy using Perry's model for intellectual development. The results show that students can…

Debiec, Piotr – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
In the Internet era, students have increasingly lost interest in traditional lectures; as a consequence, their learning motivation and exam performance have decreased. The widespread adoption of learner-centered teaching methods that address this issue faces certain barriers, including: 1) the significant faculty effort necessary to prepare…

Marques, Maira; Ochoa, Sergio F.; Bastarrica, Maria Cecilia; Gutierrez, Francisco J. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Carrying out real-world software projects in their academic studies helps students to understand what they will face in industry, and to experience first-hand the challenges involved when working collaboratively. Most of the instructional strategies used to help students take advantage of these activities focus on supporting agile programming,…

Lacave, Carmen; Molina, Ana I.; Redondo, Miguel A. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Contribution: Findings are provided from an initial survey to evaluate the magnitude of the recursion problem from the student point of view. Background: A major difficulty that programming students must overcome--the learning of recursion--has been addressed by many authors, using various approaches, but none have considered how students perceive…
