Abstract: This study intends to study the design and development of programming instruction with misconception diagnosis and correction, and its effectiveness on students’ programming learning. We have implemented a programming learning platform with misconception diagnosis and correction functions, by which students can write and compile programs, and get misconception correction feedbacks once their programs are diagnosed with possible misconception.A quasi-experimental study was conducted to examine the effectiveness of the proposed instructional methodology. The participants are 67 senior high school students. The experiment results show that students’ programming achievement can be significantly enhanced.With the guidance of misconception correction feedbacks provided by the learning platform and reflective learning activities, students can easily carry out in-depth thinking in various programming conception and constructs during practicing program implementation.
