The Value of Guided Revision.
In: Proceedings of 5th Annual Conference of the Subject Centre for Information and Computer Sciences, August 2004, Ulster, .
In the summer of 2002 the CS department at the University of Kent at Canterbury (ukc) signed up to a guided revision and key skills programme intended to help students pass their first year exams and ease the transition to the second year. The scheme, called VALUE, proved to be extremely popular with CS students and more students applied than could be accommodated. The departmental response was to create a cut-down version of the scheme, called Value-LITE. This paper describes the schemes and explores the impact of the revision phase upon examination results.
