An Exploratory Analysis of Feedback Types Used in Online Coding Exercises [article]

Natalie Kiesler
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Online coding environments can help support computing students gain programming practice at their own pace.  ...  It encourages future research on feedback types and their implementation in the context of programming exercises to define feedback types that match the demands of novice programmers.  ...  Thus, a mismatch between the theory and the practice of tutoring feedback types used in online coding exercises is assumed.  ...

Preparatory Mathematics Course for Non-Traditional Engineering Students

Nina Kälberer, Cornelia Böhmer, Katrin Tschirpke, Brigitte Petendra, Eva Maria Beck-Meuth
2014 International Journal of Engineering Pedagogy (iJEP)  
The results show that the course is an appropriate instrument prior to engineering studies in order to prepare and support nontraditional students.  ...  The instructional design of the preparatory course is aligned with that of the Bachelor's study program. However, it takes place prior to the beginning of the first semester.  ...  Students worked in teams on the exercises, while their tutor supported them. Furthermore, the tutor explained calculation methods on the fly.  ...
