Software testing is an inherently critical aspect of computer science education, however current pedagogical and industry tools lack inductive learning approaches which lead to trial-and-error behavior. Research into software testing pedagogy and the construction of a learning tool (Testing Tutor) is being developed in collaboration with University of Alabama and Georgia Southern University, made possible by an NSF grant. Testing Tutor will identify the testing concepts that are attributable to missing test cases and will provide feedback (via a customizable feedback engine) to correct test case deficiencies along with learning resources (textual and video). WOU’s research team is focused on building the subsystem to support the Python and C# languages, which WOU and many universities utilize in their curriculum. In addition, the team is developing a repository of assignments that will be shared with instructors at other institutions
