An Analysis of Retention Problems for Female Students in University Computer Science Programs.
Bunderson, Eileen D.; Christensen, Mary Elizabeth
Journal of Research on Computing in Education, v28 n1 p1-18 Fall 1995
Discusses a survey conducted to understand the gender imbalance and high level of female attrition in computer science. Suggests that factors influencing the rate of attrition are lack of previous experience with computers, gender-biased attitudes and behavior, interactions with other computer science students, and the nature of computer science as a discipline.
