Actually, the username on the retained answer has been changed, but not on the blocked/deleted one. Maybe it is all just an artifact of how the db works.

Q: "Franklin" Method for learning good programming?

Aperson123I was reading Ben Franklin's biography(the one by Walter Issacson), and it describes his method for learning to write: he would take excellent essays, jot down the basic ideas, then try to reconstruct them some time later and compare his version to the actual essay. It occurred to me that this co...

hello =)
i still lurk; just don't answer as much. school is busy

Hi @heather. Your absence has been noted. Hope school is busy-good.
The bounty is a bit weird. The "owner" isn't the OP and currently is offering up his/her entire rep for it.
 
I don't think there is research about the Franklin Method. (Alternatively, I bet it is called something else, and it is in another branch of education research, and any connections to CS would have to be by extrapolation)
@heather Ditto what he said. I hope it is busy-good. What are you studying this year?

@BenI. Not that innocently.
Nice, tho.

@BenI. I've contradicted you. See if you can find it.

@Buffy At a national scale, I still don't think that open-ended projects would work as an assessment measure.
(And I don't really think you've contradicted that, either)
I never even suggested that open-ended projects are a bad assessment tool for a classroom teacher. But as a replacement for a national examination, it would be impossible to both standardize and avoid the two problems I mentioned.
Also, I was quite pleased with my turn of phrase, "Brownian programming" :)
 
@BenI. Yes, that was funny. Like some other answers I give, I'm thinking about future visitors, not just the OP.
@BenI. That was why I asked about scale in the comment I left earlier.
 
My physician put me on a low FODMAP diet :(

Hmmm. Think about what you can eat.verywell.com/foods-on-the-low-fodmap-diet-1944679
Mozzarella yum.
 
Hello everyone. I am looking for a semi-educational programming resource, namely a repository/collection/description of "hard problems" for given algorithms. E.g., a set of graphs for which a correctly written Dijkstra will really run in O(|E|log|V|), while a sloppily written Dijkstra will take a much longer time. Would cseducators be a good place to ask a question about this? Does ordinary cs make more sense? Or just stackoverflow?
