Teachers are from Heaven, Students are from Hell - True or False?
Luiz Fernando Capretz
Physics , 2015,
Abstract: Researchers have long tried to relate personality types to teaching and learning styles. It is believed that the psychological theory behind the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) can help university teachers to accept variety in teaching and learning approaches. This paper makes some assertions about the personality traits of academics and students. These traits can create harmony or discord for individual students, depending on whether their approach to learning matches the teachers approach to teaching. Although some teaching strategies can be useful for a whole class, differences among students make it necessary to diversify those strategies.
Implications of MBTI in Software Engineering Education
Luiz Fernando Capretz
Computer Science , 2015, DOI: 10.1145/820127.820185
Abstract: A number of approaches exist to aid the understanding of individual differences and their effects on teaching and learning. Educators have been using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to understand differences in learning styles and to develop teaching methods that cater for the various personality styles. Inspired by the MBTI, we developed a range of practices for effective teaching and learning in a software engineering course. Our aim is to reach every student, but in different ways, by devising various teaching approaches.
Clues on Software Engineers Learning Styles
Luiz Fernando Capretz
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) has proved to be a useful instrument for understanding student learning preferences and has enable comparisons of the learning preferences for various personality types. Regarding learning styles, there is no one best combination of characteristics, since each preference has its own advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, it is a fallacy to think that professors can devise a single teaching technique that would always appeal to all students at the same time. The ideas presented in this paper have been taken into account in two 4th year courses, named Software Requirements and Software Design in which the students develop their capstone projects. The results of this investigation may help college instructors to understanding the preferred leaning style of software engineers.
CBSE CASE Environment
Luiz Fernando Capretz
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: With the need to produce ever larger and more complex software systems, the use of reusable components has become increasingly imperative. Of the many existing and proposed techniques for software development, it seems clear that components-based software engineering (CBSE) will be at the forefront of new approaches to the production of software systems, and holds the promise of substantially enhancing the software development and maintenance process. The required features of a CASE environment suitable for component reuse will be put forward in this paper.
Psychological Types of Brazilian Software Engineering Students
Luiz Fernando Capretz
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: The aim of this investigation was to establish the personality profile of Brazilian software engineering students according to the MBTI. This study also shows that the software engineering field attracts students of some types more than other types, for instance: Is, Ps, IPs, TPs, and INs are significantly represented in that group as opposed to E, Js, EJs, TJs, ENs.
The Challenges of CASE Design Integration in the Telecommunication Application Domain
Luiz Fernando Capretz
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: The magnitude of the problems facing the telecommunication software industry is presently at a point at which software engineers should become deeply involved. This paper presents a research project on advanced telecommunication technology carried out in Europe, called BOOST (Broadband Object-Oriented Service Technology). The project involved cooperative work among telecommunication companies, research centres and universities from several countries. The challenges to integrate CASE tools to support software development within the telecommunication application domain are discussed. A software process model that encourages component reusability, named the X model, is described as part of a software life cycle model for the telecommunication software industry.
Extracting Traceability Information from C# Projects
Michael Kernahan,Miriam Capretz,Luiz Fernando Capretz
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: The maintenance portion of the software lifecycle represents a major drain on most software companys resources. The transition from programmers to maintainers is high risk, since usually the maintainers have to learn the system from scratch before they can begin modifying it appropriately. This paper introduces a method for automatically extracting important traceability information from a C# software projects source code. Using this traceability information, maintainers (and programmers) are better able to evaluate the impacts their actions will have on the entire project.
C# Traceability System
Michael Kernahan,Miriam Capretz,Luiz Fernando Capretz
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: Traceability information is a valuable asset that software development teams can leverage to minimise their risk during production and maintenance of software projects. When maintainers are added to a software project post-production, they have to learn the system from scratch and understand its dynamics before they can begin making appropriate modifications to the source code. The system outlined in this paper extracts traceability information directly from the source code of C# projects, and presents it in such a way that it can be easily used to understand the logic and validate changes to the system.
Improving Effort Estimation by Voting Software Estimation Models
Luiz Fernando Capretz,Venus Marza
Advances in Software Engineering , 2009, DOI: 10.1155/2009/829725
Abstract: Estimating software development effort is an important task in the management of large software projects. The task is challenging, and it has been receiving the attentions of researchers ever since software was developed for commercial purpose. A number of estimation models exist for effort prediction. However, there is a need for novel models to obtain more accurate estimations. The primary purpose of this study is to propose a precise method of estimation by selecting the most popular models in order to improve accuracy. Consequently, the final results are very precise and reliable when they are applied to a real dataset in a software project. Empirical validation of this approach uses the International Software Benchmarking Standards Group (ISBSG) Data Repository Version 10 to demonstrate the improvement in software estimation accuracy.
Contributors Preference in Open Source Software Usability: An Empirical Study
Arif Raza,Luiz Fernando Capretz
International Journal of Software Engineering & Applications , 2010,
Abstract: The fact that the number of users of open source software (OSS) is practically un-limited and thatultimately the software quality is determined by end user’s experience, makes the usability an evenmore critical quality attribute than it is for proprietary software. With the sharp increase in use of opensource projects by both individuals and organizations, the level of usability and related issues must beaddressed more seriously. The research model of this empirical investigation studies and establishesthe relationship between the key usability factors from contributors’ perspective and OSS usability. Adata set of 78 OSS contributors that includes architects, designers, developers, testers and users from22 open source projects of varied size has been used to study the research model. The results of thisstudy provide empirical evidence by indicating that the highlighted key factors play a significant role inimproving OSS usability.
