This report addresses issues related to confidence in Computer Science, and how it affects performance and the decision to take Computer Science courses. Our aim with this project was to gather data on this issue broadly, and specifically at WPI, to determine how much confidence affects people and what has been done to mitigate this issue elsewhere. A survey was distributed to WPI students to collect data on how confidence affects Computer Science of WPI. Our report concludes with several solutions that worked at other schools to improve performance and diversity. It was found that confidence in computing ability varied by gender, ethnicity, and major where the minority group or groups in each of those categories had lower confidence in their computing ability.
