Abstract

Introductory programming courses are a challenge for any teacher and a barrier for undergraduate students. A tangible-augmented concept inventory (TACI) is developed according to a design-oriented methodology in close collaboration with future users (students, teachers). It aims to help teachers to become aware of the misconceptions their students have and to rectify them appropriately. Tests conducted with 8 experts and 9 students show promising results and lead to improvement of the TACI.
