UCSC-CRL-02-23: ATTITUDE MEASUREMENT: USEFUL SOFTWARE ENGINEERING TOOL?

Computer Science
It is generally recognized that human factors significantly influence software engineering performance; however, measuring them is difficult. In this small case study conventional techniques in psychology for attitude measurement are used to construct scales for measuring software engineering students\' attitudes toward the code- inspection process. The scales were applied in a test case to see if a lecture and video presentation had any measurable effect. The results indicated that such scales have the potential to reliably detect changes.
