Repetition as a Strategy to Teach Business School Students Computer Programming

Auther : Mohammad N. AlMarzouq

Aim of the Paper: This study investigates the effectiveness of repetition as a strategy for teaching novices from a non-computer science major computer programming.
Study Design: The study follows a quasi-experimental approach, using both OLS regression and simple slopes for data analysis.
Sample and Data: The sample consists of 72 undergraduate business students in an introductory programming course.
Results: Under the guidance of an instructor, repetitive solving of practical programming assignments had a positive and significant effect on student performance. The observed effect was stronger for students with a lower GPA.
Conclusion: Repetition can be a very effective strategy in building programming competencies, more so for students of lower GPA. The study highlights the importance of time factors in training, and the need to introduce programming very early in business school curricula.
