Non-restricted Access to Model Solutions: A Good Idea?

Tutkimustuotos: Artikkeli kirjassa/raportissa/konferenssijulkaisussaKonferenssiartikkeliTieteellinenvertaisarvioitu


In this article, we report an experiment where students in an introductory programming course were given the opportunity to view model solutions to programming assignments whenever they wished, without the need to complete the assignments beforehand or to wait for the deadline to pass. Our experiment was motivated by the observation that some students may spend hours stuck with an assignment, leading to non-productive study time. At the same time, we considered the possibility of students using the sample solutions as worked examples, which could help students to improve the design of their own programs. Our experiment suggests that many of the students use the model solutions sensibly, indicating that they can control their own work. At the same time, a minority of students used the model solutions as a way to proceed in the course, leading to poor exam performance.
