von Wangenheim, Christiane Gresse; Hauck, Jean C. R.; Demetrio, Matheus Faustino; Pelle, Rafael; da Cruz Alves, Nathalia; Barbosa, Heliziane; Azevedo, Luiz Felipe – Informatics in Education, 2018
The development of computational thinking is a major topic in K-12 education. Many of these experiences focus on teaching programming using block-based languages. As part of these activities, it is important for students to receive feedback on their assignments. Yet, in practice it may be difficult to provide personalized, objective and consistent…

Végh, Ladislav; Stoffová, Veronika – Informatics in Education, 2017
Algorithms are hard to understand for novice computer science students because they dynamically modify values of elements of abstract data structures. Animations can help to understand algorithms, since they connect abstract concepts to real life objects and situations. In the past 30-35 years, there have been conducted many experiments in the…

Rinderknecht, Christian – Informatics in Education, 2011
When first introduced to the analysis of algorithms, students are taught how to assess the best and worst cases, whereas the mean and amortized costs are considered advanced topics, usually saved for graduates. When presenting the latter, aggregate analysis is explained first because it is the most intuitive kind of amortized analysis, often…
