Abstract

The application of visualization technology allows for the visual representation of a wide variety of computer science concepts. No matter how effectively it is constructed, we argue that such technology has very little educational value unless it actively engages students in learning. This is experimental investigations that investigated the efficacy of visualization lends support to this stance. Regarding the utilization of visualization, it is located within the framework of the prevalent attitudes and best practices that are now in place. The authors offer a new taxonomy for the classification of learner engagement with visualization technologies. We provide metrics for evaluating the educational successes that may result from such active participation, and we do so by building upon Bloom's taxonomy of comprehension, which is widely recognized. Using these taxonomies of effectiveness and engagement measures as a foundation, we present a framework for conducting experimental investigations into the effectiveness of visualization. Educators in the field of computer science who are interested in working together with us to do research within this framework are cordially invited to do so.
