Analysis of Students' Preconceptions of Concurrency

Abstract

In previous literature, several authors have recommended teaching concurrent programming, as the current evolution of IT involves concurrency. However, in order to teach concurrent programming properly, in a constructivist educational learning framework, we need to know the preconceptions students have regarding it. In this paper, we report on the results found from data collected through a questionnaire submitted in secondary schools to 101 students aged from 12 to 15. We detail the preconceptions of concurrent programming we extracted from the questionnaire answers and formulate recommendations toward creating a course teaching concurrent programming.
