There is a rich amount of data concerning the struggles students encounter when learning to program.

Research of behavioral metrics of students have been available for multiple years, however they have not been put into practice. Currently, researchers use these metrics to compare student performance and estimate how they will score in classes. We believe these behavioral metrics should be used as indicators of different areas of student performance. This includes:

  • The time students are spending completing coding assignment
  • How many times do students experience errors when writing code
