Often, when programming solutions can be subjective, how do you define success? How do you assess students’ grasp of key programming concepts? This week we discuss how we can best measure programming success.
- Q1: What key programming concepts do you teach?
- Q2: How do you assess whether or not a student has mastered a programming concept?
- Q3: How do you report/share your success with administrators/colleagues?
- Q4: What do you suggest for Ss who are ready to move on to more advanced learning?

How can we encourage students to think about coding concepts differently? How can we reinforce programming concepts and get students to think outside of the box? This week, we push the limits of teaching programming in #KidsCanCode chat.
*Insert bonus Salt-N-Pepa gif*
