On The Supervision and Assessment Of Part−Time Postgraduate Software Engineering Projects

Andrew Simpson‚ Andrew Martin‚ Jeremy Gibbons‚ Jim Davies and Steve McKeever


This paper describes existing practices in the supervision and assessment of projects undertaken by part-time, postgraduate students in Software Engineering. It considers this aspect of the learning experience, and the educational issues raised, in the context of existing literature—much of which is focussed upon the experience of full-time, undergraduate students. The importance of these issues will increase with the popularity of part-time study at a postgraduate level; the paper presents a set of guidelines for project supervision and assessment.
