Quantitative analysis of the effects of robots on introductory Computer Science education
Barry S. Fagin, Laurence Merkle
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/949257.949259
We report the results of a year-long experiment in the use of robots to teach computer science. Our data set compares results from over 800 students on identical tests from both robotics and nonrobotics-based laboratory sessions. We also examine the...

Teaching Software Engineering in a Compiler Project Course
William G. Griswold
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/949257.949260
A compiler course with a long-term project is a staple of many undergraduate computer science curricula, and often a cornerstone of a program's applied-engineering component. Software engineering expertise can help a student complete such a course,...

An Infrastructure for Web-Based Computer-Assisted Learning
Boris Muzykantskii, Simon Rawles, Michael Evans, Mike Joy
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/949257.949261
