Experimental Evaluation of a Program Visualisation Tool for Use in Computer Science Education
This paper presents an experimental evaluation of a program visualisation tool. Computer science students in an introductory object oriented programming course in Java were asked to respond to a series of questions regarding concepts common to the writing and debugging of code at a novice level. Statistical analysis of data collected from this experiment revealed that a diagrammatic representation can significantly improve the novice understanding of program code. .
