Abstract

This thesis describes an experiment conducted to compare the response and performance of a programmer under the two current modes of program development: conversational time-sharing and batch processing. The research reported herein had two specific objectives. First to develop a procedure for identifying, classifying, and analyzing programming errors as a measure of performance, and secondly to ascertain experimentally if certain types of programming errors are more frequently occuring and more difficult to correct under conversational time-sharing than under the batch mode of processing.
