Quality4Blocks"Promoting the culture of quality from the ground up"
Quality4Blocks is a research initiative for promoting the culture of quality for introductory computing learners. Our goal is to enhance block-based programming pedagogy through developing pedagogical content knowledge and quality improvement support for the teaching and learning of software quality concepts. This work aims to foster student knowledge, skills, and practices, required to improve software quality, providing a simple pathway for bringing proven, real-world software engineering practices to the introductory computer science curriculum, imparting the importance of following principled software engineering practices to novice programmers.
