Abstract: Computational Thinking (CT) is an essential skill for K-12 students in the 21st century. Many CT assessment instruments have been implemented for students at different grade levels. However, there is a lack of systematic grouping of CT assessments to assist researchers and practitioners in selecting a suitable CT assessment instrument to use. To better understand the growing field of CT assessment, this paper presents a set of 26 CT assessments that were scoped during a recent review of the literature, coded by the specific competencies measured, and organized into a 3D Hybrid CT Framework based on Brennan and Resnick (2012), Grover and Pea (2018), and Zhong, Wang, Chen, and Li (2016).
