Many thanks to Robert Franks for suggesting this session!
This session is drawn from an invited talk I gave earlier this month at CCSC: Midwest at Denison University
Suggested by Deborah Hwang and the CCSC: Midwest Program committee
As CCSC: Midwest Program Committee reviewed papers for this conference, they reported frustration with some paper submissions
Data limited: from one single course or school, but
Author's conclusion: general trends
Program Committee interested in helping constituents
do better educational research
write better papers
For better or worse, Program Committee asked me to comment on such matters
My comments based on
published statistical results
personal experiences on various conference committees
discussions with many in the CS community
BUT my suggestions and ideas should not be taken as guarantees about what to do or what not to do!
The first part of this talk discusses a study of the reviewing process, done for SIGCSE 2000.

While I currently am honored to serve as SIGCSE Chair, please note that my comments represent my own views, not those of SIGCSE or its conferences.
Similarly, my comments do not reflect the views of Grinnell College.
