An adaptable framework for the teaching and assessment of software development across year levels
Thomas, Richard N., Cordiner, Moira, & Corney, Diane (2010) An adaptable framework for the teaching and assessment of software development across year levels. In Clear, Tony & Hamer, John (Eds.)

Few frameworks exist for the teaching and assessment of programming subjects that are coherent and logical. Nor are they sufficiently generic and adaptable to be used outside the particular tertiary institutions in which they were developed. This paper presents the Teaching and Assessment of Software Development (TASD) frame-work. We describe its development and implementation at an Australian university and demonstrate, with examples, how it has been used, with supporting data. Extracts of criteria sheets (grading rubrics) for a variety of assessment tasks are included. The numerous advantages of this new framework are discussed with comparisons made to those reported in the published literature.
