Can I Code? User Experience of an Assessment Platform for Programming Assignments (Short Paper)

pdf-format:


Abstract

Learning a programming language is a difficult matter with numerous obstacles for university students - but also for their lecturers. Assessment tools for programming assignments can support both groups in this process. They shall be adapted to the needs of beginners and inexperienced students, but also be helpful in long-term use. We utilised an adapted version of the Artemis system as an assessment platform for first-year computer science students in the introductory programming course. To examine the students' user experience (UX) over the semester, we conducted a three-stage online questionnaire study (N=42). We found that UX evolves over the semester and that platform requirements and problems in its usage change over time. Our results show that newcomers need to be addressed with caution in the first weeks of the semester to overcome hurdles. Challenges shall be added as the semester progresses.
