Taxonomy Item Empirical Studies of Software Visualization

In this research, one is examining the utility and value of algorithm animations as a pedagogical aid. Some of our early results indicate that just having students passively watch animations may not be good enough. The students need to be actively involved, try out their own data sets, etc. What seems best of all would be to have the students build their own animations.
