Bryn Mawr Computer Science Placement Questionnaire

Students have a choice of three different possible courses to enroll in to begin their computer science study at Bryn Mawr: CS 110, CS 113, and CS 206.

- CS 110: This is an introductory course appropriate for students with no, or some, experience in computer programming and computer science.

- CS 113: This is also an introductory course appropriate for students with no, or some, experience in computer programming and computer science. This course differs from CS 110 in its expectation of sufficient mathematical maturity, as demonstrated by one of the placement criteria below.

- CS 206: This is a second-semester course in computer science, appropriate for those students already with significant experience.

- CS 110: This is an introductory course appropriate for students with no, or some, experience in computer programming and computer science.

- CS 113: This is also an introductory course appropriate for students with no, or some, experience in computer programming and computer science. This course differs from CS 110 in its expectation of sufficient mathematical maturity, as demonstrated by one of the placement criteria below.

- CS 206: This is a second-semester course in computer science, appropriate for those students already with significant experience.

If you have not taken a computer science course at Bryn Mawr or Haverford and wish to enroll in either CS 113 or CS 206, please answer this questionnaire. Afterward, you may contact the instructor for CS 113 or CS 206 to ask about a permission number to enroll.

Scored 28 or higher on the ACT Math Test

Completed one or more 200-level quantitative course in the physical sciences or mathematics at Bryn Mawr / Haverford with a merit grade (enter courses below)

None of the above

Required

If you checked the box for 200-level science course(s), which course(s)?

Your answer

If you wish to enroll in CS 113 but could not check any box above, would you like to take a placement test? Choose "Other", below, if you believe you have evidence of your mathematical maturity not captured above (for example, a high school computer science course that does not lead to a standardized exam), and describe that evidence.

Yes

I checked a box above

I do not wish to take CS 113

Other:

If you wish to jump straight to CS 206, describe your computer science background. Include information about the most significant programming project you have completed and what language(s) you have worked in.

Your answer

Is there anything else about your background that will be helpful in choosing the correct placement for you?
