CS 1102-A05 : Background Survey

This brief survey gathers information on your background and perceptions of programming and programming languages. People often struggle to learn material that contradicts their existing beliefs about related concepts. I therefore want to understand what you already know/believe about programming and languages in order to target parts of the class accordingly.

The survey should take about 15-20 minutes to complete.

Answers to all questions are required with the exception of one marked as "[optional]".

A "no binding for field ..." message when you submit mean that you failed to choose an option for one of the multiple-choice questions. If you get such a message, use the back button to come back to this page and continue.
