Abstract

The assessment of computational thinking(CT) is critical for K-12 education. CT skill-transfer assessment is an important method to examine learners' ability to transfer CT to different types of problems. To promote the use of this way especially in teaching, we first analyze and summarize the principles of skill-transfer assessment: situationality, universality, interdisciplinarity and CT leading role. Then, combined with the developing process of Bebras tasks and PISA, CT skill-transfer test design model for kindergarten is proposed. Finally, the research presents 4 examples of test questions designed based in the model. It is proved that these questions are up to the standard through investigation. The research has certain reference value for the assessment of CT in the kindergarten stage.
