Gillott, Lauren; Joyce-Gibbons, Andrew; Hidson, Elizabeth – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2020
This study compares computational thinking skills evidenced by two groups of students in two different secondary schools: one group per school was studying a qualification in Computer Science. The aim was to establish which elements of computational thinking were more prevalent in students studying Computer Science to a higher level. This in turn…

Gurer, Melih Derya; Tokumaci, Seyfullah – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2020
Literature indicated that attitude toward programming, programming self-efficacy, gender, and students' department was related to achievement in computer programming. However, there is a need for further studies investigating to what extent these factors explain programming achievement in a model. This study aimed to investigate the effects of…

Robertson, Judy; Gray, Stuart; Martin, Toye; Booth, Josephine – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2020
We argue that understanding the cognitive foundations of computational thinking will assist educators to improve children's learning in computing. We explain the conceptual relationship between executive functions and aspects of computational thinking. We present initial empirical data from 23 eleven year old learners which investigates the…

Haseski, Halil Ibrahim – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2019
The aim of the present study was to determine the views of pre-service teachers on artificial intelligence. In the present qualitative study, conducted with the phenomenology design, that data were collected from 94 pre-service teachers attending different departments at Manisa Celal Bayar University, Faculty of Education during the 2018- 2019…

Chen, Chen; Jeckel, Stuart; Sonnert, Gerhard; Sadler, Philip M. – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2019
This study examines the relationship between students' pre-college experience with computers and their later success in introductory computer science classes in college. Data were drawn from a nationally representative sample of 10,197 students enrolled in computer science at 118 colleges and universities in the United States. We found that…

Cansu, Sibel Kiliçarslan; Cansu, Fatih Kürsat – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2019
Computers and smart devices have become ubiquitous staples of our lives. Computers and computer-controlled devices are used in all industries from medicine to engineering, and textile production. One field where computers have inevitably spread into is education, and one pre-requisite of controlling computers, or increasing the level and…

Kwon, Kyungbin; Cheon, Jongpil – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2019
Although teachers need to assess computational thinking (CT) for computer science education in K-12, it is not easy for them to evaluate students' programs based on the perspective. The purpose of this study was to investigate students' CT skills reflected in their Scratch programs. The context of the study was a middle school coding club where…

How, Meng-Leong; Looi, Chee-Kit – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2018
Computational Thinking (CT) is pervasive in our daily lives and is useful for problem-solving. Decision-making is a crucial part of problem-solving. In the extant literature, problem-solving strategies in educational settings are often conveniently attributed to intuition; however, it is well documented that computer programmers might even have…

Hadwen-Bennett, Alex; Sentance, Sue; Morrison, Cecily – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2018
Programming can be challenging to learn, and for visually impaired (VI) learners, there are numerous additional barriers to the learning process. Many modern programming environments are inaccessible to VI learners, being difficult or impossible to interface with using a screen reader. A review of the literature has identified a number of…

Waite, Jane Lisa; Curzon, Paul; Marsh, William; Sentance, Sue; Hadwen-Bennett, Alex – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2018
Research indicates that understanding levels of abstraction (LOA) and being able to move between the levels is essential to programming success. For K-5 contexts LOA levels have been named: problem, design, code and running the code. In a qualitative exploratory study, five K-5 teachers were interviewed on their uses of LOA, particularly the…

Lockwood, James; Mooney, Aidan – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2018
Computational Thinking has been described as an essential skill which everyone should learn and can therefore include in their skill set. Seymour Papert (Papert, 1980) is credited as concretising Computational Thinking in 1980 but Jeanette Wing (Wing, 2006) popularised the term in 2006 and brought it to the international community's attention.…
