In this study, we examine if there are relations between design ability of algorithm and the student's grades between non-programming class and programming class. Then, we make a WBT material for teaching algorithm and verify its educational effect. As a result of the research, there are some students who have no experience of programming and have difficulty in thinking algorithm to solve new problems even after learning programming languages. To help such students, the students who are not good at creating algorithm were determined with a simple test. With the results of self-learning with using the "WBT Material for Teaching Algorithm," it was found that their grades were improved. In addition, we can expect that this king of WBT materials with using a mouse device can be applied to other educational field as well.
