On Tuesday, July 25  at 4pm Pacific/7pm Eastern we held a webinar with Dr. Shuchi Grover. Shuchi discussed an assessment created as part of an NSF research project (#1543062) that measures student understanding of foundational concepts of programming that should be targeted for grades 6-8. She shared details in the webinar on the learning goals targeted, a brief account of the design and piloting process, and results of the use of the assessment in middle school classrooms (including item difficulty analyses). Besides a glimpse of all the items (questions) in the assessment, a few items were discussed in detail along with rubrics for scoring the items. Interested teachers also got a sense for how they could use the assessment in their classroom (and help the research on the assessment). Click here to access the recording. See slides below.
