A preliminary investigation with a small set of static metrics is conducted using Logiscope. Another metric, the code convergence of a set of test script run on all of the programs is also used. The metrics data, collected from programs belonging to students in the beginning programming honors course, is presented and correlated to each other to determine their dependence on each other. Consideration on how to use the metrics to help students learn to program better is given.
