Integration of leading edge computer science research into the undergraduate curriculum is widely recognized as an important aspect of preparing students to enter the twenty-first century technology workforce. We have integrated research in Grid computing into a mixed undergraduate/graduate course in performance measurement offered at Portland State University. We describe our experiences in two offerings of the new course, Measuring Computer Performance. Student mastery of the additional research material was good, and the related project work successfully taught a variety of research and group work skills. We briefly summarize plans for a future revised offering of the course.
Date of Conference: 19-22 April 2004
