NEW YORK — A new study published in the Journal of Mathematical Psychology shows that learning to program can be a useful tool for those with limited computer skills.
The study, by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, looked at the relationship between language ability and how quickly people could learn to code.
“We find that language ability is strongly related to how quickly you can learn a new language,” said lead author David L. Rader, an assistant professor in the department of mathematics and computer science at the university.
Language abilities are related to several factors, including vocabulary, understanding of a language, and familiarity with the language.
The study involved a group of 15 students in four different settings.
The first group was matched with an identical group of 20 people who were matched for language ability, but they were not asked to learn to program.
The second group was paired with an equivalent group of 16 students who were also matched for the same language ability.
The third group was also matched with a similar group of 14 students who had not been taught to code but had been instructed to write code.
The fourth group was not matched for either language ability or programming skills.
When the students were asked how they were doing, they were divided into three groups.
The students in the first group received two training sessions per week, while the other two groups were matched with no training at all.
The research found that the students in groups 1 and 2 with lower language ability were faster at completing the language test than the students with lower programming ability.
Rader said the study found that language skills were related to performance on a number of tasks that can be difficult to assess, including memory and reasoning.
He also said that students who showed higher programming ability showed greater difficulty in certain tasks.
“It is very important that you don’t think that you’re not going to do it,” he said.
This study, like other studies, showed that the language ability correlated with the ability to solve the language problem.
In fact, the higher the language proficiency, the more likely a student was to be able to solve a language problem with a high level of skill.
But the study also showed that learning a language could have a significant effect on how much effort students had to expend to learn it.
In a previous study, Rader and his colleagues found that participants who scored in the top half of the list of top performers in a language program performed better on a memory test than participants in the bottom half of that list.
That study found a similar effect in the same way, with students who scored at the top performing better on reasoning and memory tests.
But the researchers said that this study showed that language learning could have an effect on cognitive performance.
