Abstract:
Pseudocode writing is a method of the operating principle of a computer program or other algorithm in step by step manner. On the other hand, Flowchart is a type of diagram that represents process and algorithm showing boxes as process and connectors to perform a certain task. The case study investigated the different difficulties and understanding of 1st-year BSIT students in writing Pseudocodes and Flowchart in Program Logic Formulation. The participants are grouped by four and identified using purposive sampling through selection criteria. This paper will use Colaizzi's method in descriptive phenomenology data analysis using seven steps to analyze the data collected from an in-depth interview with the teacher, students, and classroom observation. The process of Colaizzi was used to assist in extracting, organizing, and analyzing such narrative dataset. The main barriers lie in student's difficulties in understanding the fundamental concepts of the subject. Besides the challenges in dealing with the problems, the teacher shows up to be more resourceful in strategies in teaching and simplifying the subject. The possible effect of the result of this study will serve as the parameter for reviewing the teaching strategies and the course content of the Program Logic Formulation subject. Furthermore, it will assess on the different multiple intelligences of the students in dealing with the logic formulation, synchronization, and analyzation of the given problems.
