Title: Identifying Important and Difficult Concepts in Introductory Computing Courses using a Delphi Process
Author(s): Goldman, Ken; Gross, Paul; Heeren, Cinda; Herman, Geoffrey; Kaczmarczyk, Lisa; Loui, Michael C.; Zilles, Craig
Subject(s): computer science
Abstract: A Delphi process is a structured multi-step process that uses a group of experts to achieve a consensus opinion. We present the results of three Delphi processes to identify topics that are important and difficult in each of three introductory computing subjects: discrete math, programming fundamentals, and logic design. The topic rankings can be used to guide both the coverage of student learning assessments (i.e., concept inventories) and can be used by instructors to identify what topics merit emphasis.
