Abstract: Sloop-SMOK is a toolkit designed to improve the student design experience in a machine organization course taken by undergraduates in their first year as computer science majors. Students in this course have had some programming experience, and may have taken a one-quarter digital design course. Before Sloop-SMOK, assignments in this course were typically assembly language program implementations of functions related to architecture. The major goals in building Sloop-SMOK were to improve the relevance of homework assignments to machine organization, and to emphasize some fundamental concepts of modern processors not easily addressed previously.
