The results of a study to develop a predictor of success in a first programming course are presented. The predictor is based on data currently available for a substantial number of students and is tailored to the local program. This predictor is developed using data from a group of students who took the course in the fall of 1980. The results obtained by(More)
This paper presents a method of design for projects in computer courses that tends to enable all students in the class to achieve their maximum potential. Each project is structured at three progressive levels of difficulty corresponding to three prospective grades A, B, and C. The B-level is an extension of the C-level and the A-level is an extension of(More)
Three cases of mycetoma were studied in the San Francisco Bay area of northern California during the period from 1960 to 1973. In each case the causal agent was identified on the basis of the histological structure of the granules and by isolation of the etiological agent in pure culture. The fungus in all cases was found to be Acremonium falciforme. This(More)
A case of xanthinuria is briefly described, and the results of in vivo studies with (14)C-labeled oxypurines are discussed. The data demonstrate that the rate of the turnover of uric acid is normal, despite an extremely small uric acid pool. Xanthine and hypoxanthine pools were measured and their metabolism evaluated. The bulk of the daily pool of 276 mg of(More)
The paper advocates the use of structured programming techniques in designing and developing assembly language programs. It presents schemata for implementing the major constructs of structured programs in IBM 370 Assembly language. These include the extensive use of equates for defining labels and the use of indentation to illustrate logical dependencies(More)
This paper describes a second database course whose emphasis is on the design and implementation of a computer system using relational database methods with Ingres. This particular course was unique in several ways. Although the team concept was utilized each member of a team was assigned a specific part of the overall project to complete. Furthermore, each(More)
This paper reports the results of a study conducted to measure the effects of the introduction of a pre-eurrieular computer course for certain prospective Computer Technology students at IPFW. The paper discusses certain screening techniques used to allow admission to the regular computer curriculum. The paper also compares the grades in the first computer(More)
This study is to determine the personality types of the Computer Science majors and to investigate whether there is correlation between success or failure in the Computer Science Program and specific personality types. Personality types were defined by C. G. Jung [1] and further articulated by Myers [2], Briggs and others. According to the theory an(More)
