Q-Methodology is a useful tool to help understand differing perspectives on a topic based on how people think, as opposed to via gender, role or ethnicity. However, Q-Methodology is seldom used in computing education research despite the importance of understanding perspectives on how educational initiatives are working in such an evolving subject area. This poster therefore provides an overview of the prevalence of Q-Methodology in existing literature, and details examples of where Q-Methodology has been used successfully in computing education research, and advocates for its use in future work.
