Abstract

At the École de technologie supérieure, an 8000-student engineering school, software quality assurance (SQA) is taught in the undergraduate and graduate software engineering curricula. The course includes a 10-week project in which teams of students apply the SQA practices taught in class in a software development project. A new international software standard, ISO/IEC 29110, has been used in the team-projects. This standard as well as a set of management and engineering guides have been developed specifically for very small projects and organizations. Throughout the 10-week project, student-teams collect measures, such as the number of defects and the rework effort, and the performance of each team is analyzed. This analysis allows discussion to take place on the impacts of SQA practices as a way to support the development of quality software on time and within budget.
