Comprehending large code bases - the skills required for working in a "Brown Fields" environment

In the search for answers to the effective teaching of programming at the beginner level, we are now seeing broader programs of research investigate the distinctions between reading, comprehending and writing small programs , . In New Zealand we have joined this work with the "Bracelet" project, in which multiple institutions will investigate how students comprehend small computer programs. We hope this may help answer critical teaching and assessment questions.
