Modelling and Measurement of Competencies in Computer Science Education

  • As a result of the Bologna reform of educational systems in Europe the outcome orientation of learning processes, competence-oriented descriptions of the curricula and competence-oriented assessment procedures became standard also in Computer Science Education (CSE). The following keynote addresses important issues of shaping a CSE competence model especially in the area of informatics system comprehension and object-oriented modelling. Objectives and research methodology of the project MoKoM (Modelling and Measurement of Competences in CSE) are explained. Firstly, the CSE competence model was derived based on theoretical concepts and then secondly the model was empirically examined and refined using expert interviews. Furthermore, the paper depicts the development and examination of a competence measurement instrument, which was derived from the competence model. Therefore, the instrument was applied to a large sample of students at the gymnasium’s upper class level.

Therefore, the instrument was applied to a large sample of students at the gymnasium’s upper class level. Subsequently, efforts to develop a competence level model, based on the retrieved empirical results and on expert ratings are presented. Finally, further demands on research on competence modelling in CSE will be outlined.show moreshow less
