NEW DATE!!! A Middle School Assessment of Introductory Programming

Interested in learning about an assessment for Introductory Programming for middle school? Join us on Tuesday, July 25  at 4pm Pacific/7pm Eastern for a webinar with Dr. Shuchi Grover. Shuchi will discuss 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. The webinar will share details 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 will be discussed in detail along with rubrics for scoring the items. Interested teachers will also get a sense for how they can use the assessment in their classroom (and helping with the research on the assessment). We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, July 25!
