Abstract:With the increase of digital tools used within programming education, new possibilities open up to analyze the quality and delivery of a course by students. Without data collected by digital tools, decisions are often made by educators that are not fully aware of the problem areas for students. By using data collected from a digital question queuing system, we can identify new points of interest for educators to improve course materials. The textual question data from this system can be processed to extract keywords and trends. Combining this with data of the timing and corresponding exercises results in valuable insights that can be overlooked when going on anecdotal evidence. These points of interest include unclear and harder exercises and programming concepts, and other time savers for both students and teaching assistants.
