Build Confidence Quickly
This resource is a brief introduction to foundational coding concepts, and will set the stage for further exploration in the domain of computer science.
Students receive immediate, rich feedback. There are a wide variety of questions — all of which are auto-graded, giving students a sense of their understanding of the material right after they are introduced to it and as they attempt harder and harder problems.
Constructing Knowledge Through Coding
Lowering the Barrier to Entry
Another way in which this content is more approachable is that it is using many small programs instead of one large program. Research shows that a variety of smaller problems increase student performance and reduce stress. Using many small programs leads to students spend a sufficient amount of time on their work, and they do not wait until the last moment to begin their work.
