Minjong Cheon, Ook Lee, Changbae Mun, and Hyodong Ha

Abstract—In an industry, society gets more interest in software. In accordance with this trend, in the process of composing the university's curriculum, it is increasingly emphasized that problem-based learning through computational thinking and programming ability based on logical thinking is weighted. This study conducted a study on how to identify students' educational characteristics and study intention. In particular, a methodology to explore the study intention for Python programming from the characteristics of each student was reviewed. For this analysis, the relationship between new technology from their point of view and factors is analyzed, factors are identified for methodologies, and statistical methodologies are used to verify them. The purpose of this study is to find improvements for software education operation and to provide help in educational policy decision-making of university members who conduct computer software education.
