Abstract

Methods to guide introduction to Software Process Improvement (SPI) courses to potentiate “learning SPI by doing SPI” and their systematic evaluations are relevant to both practice and research. An evaluation model for an educational method to teach SPI was developed. This model is based on a model for the evaluation of educational games. The developed model is composed of model design; evaluation process, objective and questionnaire; documentation model, data compilation and analysis model and spreadsheet; and example of use. The model was used to evaluate a course. Results of this evaluation provide initial validation of this model and also indicate that the evaluated method is effective in potentiate “learning SPI by doing SPI”.
