Composing SQL queries
A study on problem-solving strategies in computer science education B. van Dijk

€19.30

Because of the fast developments in computer science, instruction in this domain should aim at the acquisition of fundamental knowledge and flexible problem-solving skills that remain useful when application programs change. The training of systematic problem-solving strategies seems a promising way to provide students with such knowlegde and skills.

In this study the results are presented of experiments in upper secondary education with the relational database query language SQL. The effects are compared of instruction in two systematic design methods for solving query problems. The ‘top-down method’ models expert problem-solving behavior, while the ‘bottom-up method’ is more in agreement with the problem approach of novices. Effects of instruction in these methods are presented, as well as the influence of learner characteristics (cognitive abilities and styles) and way of presentation.

The book may be relevant for those interested in the design of instruction, especially in the area of computer science education.
