This paper summarizes findings from a Student Motivation Survey (SMS) developed to monitor students' dispositions toward CS education. This survey was administered as part of the iDREAMS project, which involved creating in-school computer programming opportunities for middle school students. The analysis reported here is based on survey responses collected(More)
