This study supports the claim that block programming interfaces can significantly improve novice performance on some programming activities, specifically through increased time on task and quicker, more frequent achievement of programming goals. The study suggests that the block interface is an important component of BBPEs, which is worthy of future study and development.

Visual, block-based programming environments present an alternative way of teaching programming to novices and have proven successful in classrooms and informal learning settings. However, few studies have been able to attribute this success to specific features of the environment. In this study, we isolate the most fundamental feature of these environments, the block interface, and compare it directly to ist textual counterpart. We present analysis from a study of two groups of novice programmers, one assigned to each interface, as they completed a simple programming activity. We found that while the interface did not seem to affect users' attitudes or perceived difficulty, students using the block interface spent less time off task and completed more of the activity's goals in less time.

This study seeks to isolate the effects of a block interface on the experience of novices when learning to program. To do this, we created two instances of a programming environment, differing only in that one uses a textual programming interface, and one uses a block interface. We collected data from novice, middle-school programmers as they used one of the two interfaces, and analyzed it to answer the following research questions. When compared to a textual interface, how will a block interface:
  • RQ1. Affect students' attitudes towards computing?
  • RQ2. Affect their perceived diculty of programming?
  • RQ3. Affect their performance on a programming activity?
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to directly compare block and textual programming interfaces in an otherwise controlled setting.
