CodeCombat: Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions about CodeCombat

  1. What ages are appropriate for CodeCombat? CodeCombat is recommended for students ages 9 and up.
  2. What grades are appropriate for CodeCombat? CodeCombat is recommended for schools with students ages 9 and up, which starts in 4th grade in the US.
  3. What are the programming languages available? We currently support Python and JavaScript.
    • Why should you choose Python? Python is both beginner-friendly and currently used by major corporations (such as Google). If you have younger or first-time learners, we strongly recommend Python.
    • Why should you choose JavaScript? JavaScript is the language of the web and is used on nearly every website. You may prefer to choose JavaScript if you are planning to also study web development. We’ve also made it easy for students to transition from Python to JavaScript-based web development.
    • JavaScript’s syntax is a little more difficult for beginners than Python, so if you cannot decide between the two, we recommend Python.
  4. Can I track my student’s progress? Yes - the Teacher Dashboard provides detailed student progress, completion time and overall class statistics, and also allows you to manage student course assignments.
  5. Does CodeCombat work on an iPad? We do not currently support iPads or Android Tablets at this time.
  6. Does CodeCombat support Clever Instant Logins? Yes! Check our Clever Integration FAQ for more details on how to get started.
