Computing Education Flexible Pre-Major Analysis

Michael Zastre, University of Victoria
This report describes the traditional approach to articulation in Computing Education and outlines the rationale for using a learning outcomes approach as a basis for a Flexible Pre-Major. Outcomes for discipline-specific learning in both Computer Science and Information Science/Information Technology are provided. It concludes that a Flexible Pre-Major can be developed to facilitate students transferring institutions into a major at the third year level, recommending one be developed on the basis of learning outcomes and on the concept of a "basket of courses" rather than the more typical multi-lateral grid of individual course equivalencies.
