StarLogo Nova is an agent-based modelling tool that has been used to great effect in educational curricula. However, it is missing features of its predecessor. One of the missing features, the Say block debugging tool, was implemented. A study was performed to determine whether the new Say block was better than existing debugging tools in StarLogo Nova. The study showed that students are averse to using any debugging tool without training. To this end, several tutorials were written.
