A Validation Study of Student Differentiation between Computing Disciplines
Battig, Michael; Shariq, Muhammad
Information Systems Education Journal, v9 n5 p105-115 Oct 2011
Using a previously published study of how students differentiate between computing disciplines, this study attempts to validate the original research and add additional hypotheses regarding the type of institution that the student resides. Using the identical survey instrument from the original study, students in smaller colleges and in different cultural contexts are studied. Both the original and the validation study consider computing and non-computing majors. Although the original research was largely validated through some strikingly similar results, some significant differences were observed depending on the size and orientation of the institution. Furthermore, we noted some differences in college students outside of the US.
