ERIC - Why the Rhetoric of CS Programming Assignments Matters, Computer Science Education, 2004
Despite the multiple potential benefits of asking students working on programming tasks to consider human factors, most programming assignments narrowly focus on technical details and requirements. Female students in particular may be attracted to assignments that emphasize human as well as technical factors. To assess how students respond to changes in the rhetorical presentation of programming instructions, 81 students completed questionnaires evaluating different assignment instructions. Students generally perceived assignments emphasizing real-world contexts and users as more motivating and enjoyable to program than those that did not emphasize human factors. Moreover, when asked what makes a "good" programming assignment, over half of the students volunteered that they looked for assignments stressing a real-world purpose, use or application. (Contains 3 tables.)

Inside Search: Search using your terms, verbatim
Since then, we’ve received a lot of requests for a more deliberate way to tell Google to search using your exact terms. We’ve been listening, and starting today you’ll be able to do just that through verbatim search. With the verbatim tool on, we’ll use the literal words you entered without making normal improvements such as

making automatic spelling corrections
personalizing your search by using information such as sites you’ve visited before
including synonyms of your search terms (matching “car” when you search [automotive])
finding results that match similar terms to those in your query (finding results related to “floral delivery” when you search [flower shops])
searching for words with the same stem like “running” when you’ve typed [run]
making some of your terms optional, like “circa” in [the scarecrow circa 1963]

You can access the verbatim search tool under “More search tools” on the left-hand side.
