This paper analyses routine course evaluation performed by students in the computer science related professional bachelor degree educations at DTU. Specifically, a set of two related courses are considered. The courses are: “Introductory Programming” and “Development Methods for IT-Systems”. Both courses include lectures and lab work. It is seen that both similarities and differences in the evaluations can be found. The similarities and differences can in part be used to assess if the CDIO concept has been implemented as it was intended and possible adjustments can be suggested.
