The majority of university level courses offer a similar experience to all students. However in the teaching of introductory computer programming this practice has become increasingly difficult to justify, due to the widely differing initial experience of students. This paper describes an attempt to provide, at low cost, some level of differing experience depending on the needs of the student. The students were allowed to select for themselves which group to join. The experiment was successful in improving student experience and in demonstrating that the students were capable of selecting appropriate groups.
