Abstract

Since computational thinking has been acknowledged as a relevant part of students’ 21st century key competencies, research turns attention toward in-school acquisition of computational thinking (Voogt et al., 2015). This contribution refers to these developments and presents research on computational thinking as an international option in the context of the ICILS 2018 (International Computer and Information Literacy Study). ICILS 2018, an international comparative large scale assessment in which e.g. the U.S. and Germany take part in, first time measures Grade 8 students’ competences in computational thinking by implementing computer-based tests (Fraillon et al., 2018, in press). In the context of a German national extension the presentation elaborates on the international study by additionally focusing on the congruence between computational thinking and problem-solving in general (Labusch & Eickelmann, 2017). By following this approach, implications for school improvements, teacher educations and teachers will be drawn and discussed (Eickelmann, 2018, in press).
