Abstract Over several years, a large number of students took the same introductory programming course. The students were drawn from all academic disciplines and academic experience levels. Low correlations were found between success in the course or its evaluation components when posed against academic program, gender, or semester in school. Additionally, when the IBM Programmer's Aptitude Test was administered, the predictive value of the test was found to be low.
