The 157 computing education papers from the past eight NACCQ conferences are categorised and summarised by a group of researchers from multiple institutions, with steps taken to measure and improve the consistency of classification. The papers are set predominantly in programming subjects, hardware/architecture/systems/ network subjects, and capstone projects. The bulk of the papers are about teaching/learning techniques, assessment techniques, teaching/learning tools, curriculum, and educational technology. Most of the papers are set within single subjects, a few in multiple subjects within a single program or department, and fewer still in a range of subjects across the whole institution or multiple institutions. Nearly a quarter of the papers either expound a position or outline a proposal; a large but diminishing proportion report on something such as a change of curriculum or approach; and a large and increasing proportion are clearly research papers, focusing on the analysis of data to answer an explicit research question.
