Using a Two-Stage Final Exam in an Intro CS Course: Student Perceptions and Grade Impacts
We present results from testing a two-stage exam format in a small, first-year programming class (n=24), including survey responses from students (n=8) about their experience with the exam format. Students reported liking the format due to a decrease in stress, helping them to better understand course concepts, and helping to improve their grades.
