Abstract

Given increasing adoption of agile software development methodologies it is essential that information technology students are exposed to them. This paper describes and evaluates an attempt to introduce agile programming into a core second year programming course. The initiative appeared to be associated with improvements in both drop out and pass rate, and student perceptions of the innovation were largely positive.
