Assessing Learning In Introductory Computer Science: Dagstuhl Seminar Report now Available

September 26, 2016 at 7:26 am Leave a comment

I have written about this Dagstuhl Seminar (see earlier post). The formal report is now available.

This seminar discussed educational outcomes for first-year (university-level) computer science. We explored which outcomes were widely shared across both countries and individual universities, best practices for assessing outcomes, and research projects that would significantly advance assessment of learning in computer science. We considered both technical and professional outcomes (some narrow and some broad) as well as how to create assessments that focused on individual learners. Several concrete research projects took shape during the seminar and are being pursued by some participants.
