Blocks-based programming is becoming the standard way to introduce learners to programming both inside classrooms and beyond. Educators and designers advocate for this approach arguing that it is easier to get started and more engaging for the learner. In this paper, we sought to understand how high school students enrolled in an introductory programming course perceived the blocks-based programming approach. Through cognitive interviews and surveys, we found that students generally found blocks-based programming to be easier than the text-based alternative, citing reasons including the natural language labels on the blocks, the shapes and colors of the blocks, the drag-and-drop composition mechanism, and the ease of browsing the blocks library. Students also identified drawbacks to the blocks-based programming approach, including issues of authenticity, expressive power, and challenges in authoring larger, more sophisticated programs. We also found that the differences high school students see between blocks-based and text-based programming span the visual interface, the types of programs that can be authored, as well a different programming practices that each representation supports.

Blocks-based programming tools are becoming increasingly common in high-school introductory computer science classes. Such contexts are quite different than the younger audience and informal settings where these tools are more often used. This paper reports findings from a study looking at how high school students view blocks-based programming tools, what they identify as contributing to the perceived ease-of-use of such tools, and what they see as the most salient differences between blocksbased and text-based programming. Students report that numerous factors contribute to making blocks-based programming easy, including the natural language description of blocks, the drag-anddrop composition interaction, and the ease of browsing the language. Students also identify drawbacks to blocks-based programming compared to the conventional text-based approach, including a perceived lack of authenticity and being less powerful. These findings, along with the identified differences between blocks-based and text-based programming, contribute to our understanding of the suitability of using such tools in formal high school settings and can be used to inform the design of new, and revision of existing, introductory programming tools.
