The Design and Implementation of Computational Thinking Assessment Based on Life Situation for Kindergarten
Abstract: Computational thinking(CT) is a hot research topic in K-12 education, which advocates use computer science knowledge or technology to solve real problems in life. The level of CT can be measured by examining students' ability to use CT to solve real problems in life situation. For kindergarten students, the test method is a basic and important evaluation tool. Our study fully draws on the question making process of the authoritative Bebras test, determine the algorithm programming as the core dimension of evaluation indexes, design specific question based on supermarket situation and verify the reliability and validity. The research has a certain supplement and expansion of the perspective and direction of the evaluation of CT in Kindergarten stage.
