How good are students at assessing the quality of their applications?
*Subscription may be required
This study investigated the ability of students to assess the quality of applications they developed as part of their course work. Both students and independent expert assessors scored the applications on various dimensions of quality. Students rated all aspects of their applications more highly than did the experts. Although students and experts agreed in their relative assessments of user-friendliness, a negative correlation existed between student and expert assessments of the reliability dimension. Some implications of these results for teaching are discussed.
