SMASH CS Qualitative Insights
Program leaning more CS-focus
"Not being to pressure into and just let me enjoy it . I know the importance but also feel like y'all just what us to follow this path and not our own. Why not ask the same questions for all classes, maybe if the program wasn't so bias towards cs more people would think about going into a cs career.
Perceived as boring
The reason why I am not really that interested is the fact that, although I did apply myself almost all of the time, I do find this subject incredibly boring, and very inapplicable to MY life. Although I do feel comfortable solving problems in the COMMUNITY with the things that I learned, I still find it very boring.
It would be more interesting if we were taught more on how computer science can be fun and not like a boring job that everyone thinks it really is.
Different experience level
I was rally wishing that SMASH would provide the basics when it comes to computing, because right now the class is hard because we're all at different levels. If the curriculum was set forstudent with different levels on CS, I feel like our test scores would be a lot better.
If office hours were available, I would've definitely taken advantage of them.
office hours or more individual study time with the instructor
One on one time/check in's are really helpful
More programming websites to help us understand it better like a khan academy for computer programming.
Having more websites or resources to learn more about it from.
More helpful online resources that could help us with our programming.
Everything is fine just maybe more description on how the code is functioning and fewer tests.
If he didn't stare so much and get so close to me
Learning it myself, and actually understanding it more.
Taking courses that go at a slower pace so I can take my time to learn concepts
AY CS Classes
If SMASH offred me more CS classes after so that i can practice throughout the year.
Time away from the computer
What would make me more interested in pursuing computer science in high school and college is if you weren't always working with a computer.
If we treated something that actually apply to my community right now, not in the future, or if I create something I actually want to create like a game.
To make a game in high school.
