Abstract

We distinguish between cognitive competence, captured in Bloom et al.’s cognitive taxonomy, and operational competence, expressed in Simpson’s hierarchy. We argue that the skills gap observed by employers can be addressed by designing computing degrees that focus on developing competence rather than on knowledge.
