Difficulty Levels for CS101 (Python)

Difficulty Levels in CS101

Every hands-on coding exercise and project includes five distinct levels of difficulty, so you can place students on a level matching their ability with the appropriate level of scaffolding support and challenge. Difficulty levels range from Level 1, guided support with solution code accessible for each line, to Level 5, a completely blank file with no additional scaffolding.

There are four types of activities in CS 101 that have Difficulty Levels available:

  • Teacher Code Writing
  • Student Code Writing
  • Student Code Restructure (only includes levels 1-3)
  • Student Coding Project

A summary of the support available to students in each level is shown in the table below:

Next, we'll look at how to customize Difficulty Levels for an activity:
