In this paper, we begin by considering object-oriented programming concepts and typical novice misconceptions as identified in the literature. We then present the results of a close examination of student programs, in an objects-first CS1 course, in which we find concrete evidence of students learning these concepts while also displaying some of these misconceptions. This leads to the development of two checklists that educators can use when designing or grading student programs.
