Title: Growing a Software Quality Culture In An Educational Environment
Author: Howles, Trudy
Abstract: The technical skills students must acquire in a typical computer science program are often mandated through standards or curricular requirements. How are non-technical skills assessed? Computer science educators must teach and encourage the development of other critical skills needed in the workplace such as personal accountability, a strong work ethic and an ability to deliver on-time and correct work. This paper describes the results of a student survey designed to provoke some thoughts about the evolving work ethic and work culture of today‘s students. Along with the survey results, the importance in asking the questions and a brief analysis of how the behavior or activity fits into the qualify cycle are presented. Finally, a section on continuous improvement strategies is proposed.
