International Code Hunt Workshop on Educational Software Engineering (CHESE
Co-located with ISSTA 2015 Baltimore, MD, USA July 14, 2015

Submission Deadline: May 4, 2015

Software engineering for education focuses on developing technologies that
make programming, testing and analysis more accessible to students. This
workshop explores testing through gaming, which is popular with students,
and can produce data worthy of analysis. Code Hunt is an industrial
strength programming game which is now open in the community and available
for research. The aim of the workshop is to act not only as a forum for the
exchange of ideas, but also as a vehicle to stimulate, deepen, and widen
partnership between software engineering and education fields
internationally. The workshop will pay special attention to the open source
Code Hunt data (players’ playing history) released by Microsoft Research (

This workshop is intended to build up a specific part of the research
community of educational software engineering around testing using gaming.
Code Hunt is the most available tool for this research, but papers
addressing other platforms, systems and tools are also welcome.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

*. theory and practice of testing in education
*. the relationship between testing and gaming
*. approaches to providing hints
*. analysis and visualization of student data
*. challenges of sharing and re-using data
*. challenges provided by different programming languages
*. experience reports on playing Code Hunt games
*. constructing and analyzing Code Hunt games
*. challenges of white box testing.

Types of submissions

The workshop solicits regular papers (6 pages) and position statements or
demo reports (2 pages).
