Seeking study participants: What should BS in CS graduates know about software development?

November 19, 2014 at 8:05 am 3 comments

Katrin was in our ICER DC this last August.  She is trying to measure the expectations that software companies and universities have on BS in CS graduates. She has a survey on software development and the software development process. She asked me to share this message:

my name is Kathrin Bröker and I’m research associate at the University of Paderborn, Germany (Working Group Computer Science Education).
My research focus is on competencies of computer science students. In this context I developed a survey, where I would like to figure out which expectations companies and universities have on graduates with a bachelor degree in computer science. The main focus is on software development and the software development process.
I would greatly appreciate your participation in the survey. To complete the survey you will need ca. 15-20 min. Please follow this link:
In addition, I would be very thankful if you send this mail to other potential participants in this survey.
Best regards
Kathrin Bröker

    The English language version of this survey needs some work. As it is there are confusing and ambiguous terms that make it difficult to provide good answers to all questions.

      Thank you for your feedback. I will have a look on it again and correct it.

      Dennis, Kathrin is reading here now. Can you be specific in identifying the problems? Thank you for this!
