Kern, Ronald P.
Community/Junior College Quarterly of Research and Practice, v14 n2 p115-22 Apr-Jun 1990
Compares student achievement in introductory computer science courses before and after the introduction of a competency-based course syllabus. Finds little difference in the performance of 1988 and 1989 summer students. Fall competency-based students had a higher dropout rate but increased performance. (DMM)
