Abstract

The purpose of this research is to examine the coding skills of five-year-old children in terms of some variables. The research sample comprises 160 children aged five years studying in kindergarten affiliated with the Ministry of National Education in Gaziantep city center in the 2021-2022 academic year. As a data collection tool in the research, the “personal information form,” which includes personal information about children and their parents, and “CodingTest 2”, the short form of “CodingTest” and “CodingTest,” developed by Kalyenci et al. (2022), were used to evaluate the coding skill levels of five-year-old children. Pearson correlation analysis, t-test, and ANOVA were used to analyze data. As a result of the findings obtained from the research, it was concluded that coding skills were not related to gender but were related to whether the children had coding education, the education level of parents, and their families’ income level.
