  • Ratcliffe, Mark; Moström, Jan Erik; Eckerdal, Anna; McCartney, Robert; Zander, Carol (2006)
    This paper examines software designs produced by students nearing completion of their Computer Science degrees. The results of this multi-national, multi-institutional experiment present some interesting implications for ...
  • Ratcliffe, Mark; Thomas, Lynda (2004)
    This paper describes a project that aims to enhance student learning of Object Oriented Programming through the development of an interactive learning environment. Through a series of connected experiments we have sought ...
  • Thomasson, Benjy; Ellis, Wayne; Thomas, Lynda; Ratcliffe, Mark (2003)
    This paper describes a project being undertaken at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth that captures students’ designs in an attempt to improve the pedagogy. To enhance their understanding of object oriented programming, ...
  • Thomas, Lynda; Robertson, Ann; Ratcliffe, Mark (2003-01)
    This paper reports on how first-year students who have programmed before see their programming interest and ability and how this self-perception relates to their performance in the introductory programming course. In ...
  • Eckerdal, Anna; Ratcliffe, Mark; McCartney, Robert; Moström, Jan Erik; Zander, Carol (2005)
    This paper examines the problem of studying and comparing student software designs. We propose semantic categorization as a way to organize widely varying data items. We describe how this was used to organize a particular ...
  • Thomasson, Benjy; Thomas, Lynda; Ratcliffe, Mark (2006)
    We report on a study of novice programmers’ object oriented class designs. These designs were analysed to discover what faults could be discovered. The two most common faults related to non-referenced classes (inability ...
  • Thomas, Lynda; Woodbury, John; Jarman, E.; Ratcliffe, Mark (2002-03)
    This paper reports on the implication of different preferred learning styles on students' performance in the introductory programming sequence and on work in progress on how to accommodate these different styles.Students ...
  • Eckerdal, Anna; Ratcliffe, Mark; Sanders, Kate; Moström, Jan Erik; Zander, Carol; McCartney, Robert (2006)
    This paper describes Threshold Concepts, a theory of learning that distinguishes core concepts whose characteristics can make them troublesome in learning. With an eye to applying this theory in computer science, we consider ...
  • Thomas, Lynda; Thomasson, Benjy; Ratcliffe, Mark (2004)
    This paper describes a project being undertaken at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth that aims to enhance the pedagogical process through the use of collaborative design. It describes a survey that highlights dissatisfaction ...
