Abstract

We have developed a quantitative tool for assessing senior high school students' computational thinking skills and administered it in the Taipei metropolitan area of Taiwan. Our CT test is language/tool/knowledge-independent and focuses on four key CT concepts: decomposition, data representation, algorithms, and pattern generalization. Our paper outlines the development process of the CT test, including its constructs, reliability, and validity, and discusses its educational implications for computing courses. This CT test provides a valuable resource for computing teachers who wish to assess their students' CT abilities and tailor their teaching methods accordingly.
