A tool that measures the computer background of students is described. The instrument consists of a short survey that collects data, an easy method to analyze the data, and hints on how to interpret the results. Suggestions on how to use the survey with face to face students and with online students are given. The students surveyed were freshmen in an introductory computer class. Limitations of the study are discussed. Adapting the tool in other than the intro to computers classes is one of the implications of the study that are discussed here. The presentation concludes with suggestions for future research.
