IDE-Based Learning Analytics for Computing Education: A Process Model, Critical Review, and Research Agenda
C. D. Hundhausen, D. M. Olivares, A. S. Carter
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/3105759

In recent years, learning process data have become increasingly easy to collect through computer-based learning environments. This has led to increased interest in the field of learning analytics, which is concerned with leveraging learning...

Blending Measures of Programming and Social Behavior into Predictive Models of Student Achievement in Early Computing Courses
Adam S. Carter, Christopher D. Hundhausen, Olusola Adesope
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/3120259

Analyzing the process data of students as they complete programming assignments has the potential to provide computing educators with insights into both their students and the processes by which they learn to program. In prior research, we...

A Contingency Table Derived Method for Analyzing Course Data
Alireza Ahadi, Arto Hellas, Raymond Lister
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/3123814

We describe a method for analyzing student data from online programming exercises. Our approach uses contingency tables that combine whether or not a student answered an online exercise correctly with the number of attempts that the student made...

A Framework for Using Hypothesis-Driven Approaches to Support Data-Driven Learning Analytics in Measuring Computational Thinking in Block-Based Programming Environments
Shuchi Grover, Satabdi Basu, Marie Bienkowski, Michael Eagle, Nicholas Diana, John Stamper
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/3105910

Systematic endeavors to take computer science (CS) and computational thinking (CT) to scale in middle and high school classrooms are underway with curricula that emphasize the enactment of authentic CT skills, especially in the context of...

Youth Computational Participation in the Wild: Understanding Experience and Equity in Participating and Programming in the Online Scratch Community
Deborah A. Fields, Yasmin B. Kafai, Michael T. Giang
Article No.: 15
DOI: 10.1145/3123815

Most research in primary and secondary computing education has focused on understanding learners within formal classroom communities, leaving aside the growing number of promising informal online programming communities where young users...
