Data Structures COSC2320 is not an easy grade

I am a temporary part-time, instructor faculty in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Houston (Spring 2016). I will not teach on the summer session. I will teach on Fall semester (exactly the same course).

On Spring 2016, slightly over 25% of students dropped the class before the deadline for withdrawal with “w“. The programming assignments (homework) require substantial time investment. There are at least 10 days between each homework. The class webpage is now hosted in git: uhcs2320.

On Fall 2016, the same course is available with a professor that has several more years experience in teaching it than me. Reviews on her course likely are available in the usual places. Also on Fall 2016: there is a *new* version of the class (4 credit hours instead of 3) that has a required lab session with it. The professor teaching it also has several more years experience in teaching it than me. Similarly, reviews on his course likely are available in the usual places. My course is much more similar to his course.
