Guinan, Tricia; Stephens, Larry – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1988

Considers three questions regarding computer science courses: (1) Can performance be predicted?; (2) Does a solid mathematical background provide the student with an advantage?; and (3) Is gender a factor in performance or aptitude? Reports a strong math background was related to achievement in a beginning course while gender was not related. (MVL)
