A method for recognizing algorithms by detecting algorithmic schemas is presented. The method uses the findings of the studies on programming schemas, according to which experts develop schemas, high-level cognitive constructs that abstract knowledge of programming structures, and use them in comprehending and solving similar problems that differ in lower level details. We introduce a set of schemas for sorting algorithms that consists of loops, their nesting relationship, beacon-like algorithm… CONTINUE READING
