Q6 Evaluation

21. Computational Thinking


evaluation arrow

You have completed the four stages of Computational Thinking, but you still need to evaluate what you have done. How do you think the process went? What do you think you could have improved? If the problem involves others, have you involved them in the process and have they given you feedback? During this Quest, you will work on these questions and decide whether or not, you need to revisit any of the computational thinking stages.
