Abstract : The purpose of this study was to compare the existing method of teaching code in the Navy with the method proposed by L. Robins. It appears that with regard to speed, there is no difference between the groups at any time during the course. One method requires about the same length of time to increase the students' speeds to certain levels, whether this speed is 4, 10, 16, or 22 words per minute. At the end of 22 weeks of instructions, students taught by one method are just as fast and as accurate as students taught by the other. The only differences between the methods that were found in this study were that during the early weeks of code instruction, the experimental subjects were more accurate than the control subjects.
