CS Principles Pilot II: C/U Student Pre-Course Survey
1. Introduction Page
Your Computer Science Principles course is part of a national effort to increase opportunities for students in the field of computer science. You are joining thousands of other college, university, and high school students in piloting this course, and we thank you for your efforts.
As part of piloting this course, we need to collect data on students' interest levels and attitudes towards computer science.
The survey you are being asked to take includes questions intended to measure students' perceptions about their own abilities with current technologies.
Therefore, we ask for your honesty in completing this survey, and we also invite you to omit responding to questions that make you feel uncomfortable. Please know that your identifying information will be used ONLY to match pre/post data. This information will be kept strictly confidential and all student identifiers will be replaced with random ID numbers, once pre/post data matching has occurred.
Thank you in advance for completing this survey!
