Taylor, Harriet G.; Mounfield, Luegina C.
Journal of Educational Computing Research, v11 n4 p291-306 1994
Presents research conducted with a group of non-computer science majors to determine the effects of prior computing experience on success in college computer science courses. Specific relationships between prior experience factors and gender were studied, and the results indicate that pre-college computing can have an important role in achieving gender equity in college computer science courses.
