Asking The Right Questions

As of now we are focusing our efforts to dig deeper into the data that we currently have. So far we have investigated the user data in two categories. One set of the data made a comparison in the performance of both Java and C# users. The other set compared users based off of their declared experience. Users can be beginner, intermediate or advanced users. Our current findings on these two data sets do not say much right now, but we are just scratching the surface. By asking the right questions we can discover more about Code Hunt and how users learn to problem solve.

Possibly looking at other aspects of our data can give us insight to this. For example the data that we were able to analyze gave us some insight to where a programmer can usually struggle. We were able to pinpoint specific puzzles based on our data. Still not every question will lead us to good results, which makes this process difficult. However, it is still a great learning process and it all depends on one's curiosity. Research so far has helped me approach the same information in different angles. Still, more questions need to be asked in order to make a big discovery in terms of educational software engineering.
