Experiments with Industry's "Pair-Programming" Model in the Computer Science Classroom

  title={Experiments with Industry's "Pair-Programming" Model in the Computer Science Classroom},
  author={Laurie A. Williams and Robert R. Kessler},
  journal={Computer Science Education},
Anecdotal evidence from several sources, primarily in industry, indicates that two programmers working collaboratively on the same design, algorithm, code, or test perform substantially better than the two working alone. Two courses taught at the University of Utah studied the use of this technique, often called pair-programming or collaborative programming, in the undergraduate computer science classroom. The students applied a positive form of `̀ pairpressure'' on each other, which proved… CONTINUE READING
