Overview:

Computer Science received seed funding from CWSEI in 2007 and began the efforts listed below in the Fall. The department moved to full funding starting in mid-2008.

Computer Science plans to use CWSEI's scientific approach to improve student learning throughout our curriculum as an iterative process including:

  • articulating clear learning goals for our individual courses and our program as a whole,
  • developing both formative assessments to guide teaching and learning techniques and summative assessments (i.e., exams) that evaluate those learning goals,
  • revising our teaching techniques in response to assessments,
  • and establishing administrative structures to sustain these efforts.
