Abstract

Teaching basic programming in higher education is one of the great challenges of computing. Much effort has been dedicated to the research of new languages, tools and methodologies that may help reduce the failure rates. Furthermore, analysis of student’s cognitive abilities and attitudes have been undertaken to identify relevant characteristics that help understand the variables associated to the encountered difficulties. This paper presents results obtained through the application of the IACHE inventory, a generic behaviour test for higher education, to introductory programming students in Brazil and in Portugal.
