Abstrakt

In this paper we study novice programmers’ strategies during different phases of programming. Programming strategies are about cognitive processes that result in the programmers’ code being written from scratch, edited or deleted. The paper presents a questionnaire, which will be used to investigate how and when novice programmers use different strategies and how this affects the quality of the resulting program. We identify the cognitive processes that novice programmers utilise to complete a programming task. These cognitive processes may or may not result in immediate changes in the code. The ultimate purpose of this ongoing research is to contribute to improve the initial programmer education.
