Currently CS2135, "Programming Language Concepts," takes an "over-the-hood" approach to the Scheme programming language. This report shows, through both quantitative and qualitative methods, that a new "under-the-hood" version of this course taught in C-Term 2000, developed by an MQP team here at WPI, was successful from academic, student, and teaching standpoints. There was a significant increase in the mean final grade and a lower drop rate in C-Term 2000 as compared to the previous run of this course in C-Term 1999. Results from the students' bluesheets were about the same. And finally, the Professor (Michael Gennert) was very happy with the new course upon its completion.
