Hi Ben,

It is possible that data of this type is being gathered at the software 
factory<http://www.softwarefactory.cc/> - see the 
article<http://www.ppig.org/newsletters/2011-08.html#factory> in the last ppig 
newsletter. I'm sure that Fabian (cc'd) will be happy to discuss.

Dear PPIG,

Does anyone know of accessible data on the development of programming expertise 
across the years of an undergraduate degree?

I know about the phenomenographic thesis by Shirley Booth observing 
undergraduates and the longitudinal study by Judy Kay and Richard Thomas of the 
development of expertise in using the SAM editor over a number of years, but 
are there any other authors who have observed students over time to map in 
detail how their understanding of programming develops?

Many thanks
