The National Toxicology Program (NTP) uses the results of various experiments to determine if test agents are carcinogenic. Because these experiments are costly and time consuming, the rate at which test agents can be tested is limited. The ability to predict the outcome of the analysis at various points in the process would facilitate informed decisions(More)
The National Toxicology Program (NTP) studies chemicals to determine if they are carcinogenic. These experiments include subchronic (90 day) and chronic (2 year) rodent exposures studies and, therefore, are costly and time consuming. The long-range goal of our research is to learn Bayesian belief networks from the NTP data and use them to predict the(More)
This paper describes an experiment in which student teams developed products using two different methodologies: the Team Software Process (TSP) as a plan-driven methodology and Extreme Programming (XP) as an agile methodology. We carefully define cohesion and derive instruments appropriate for measuring cohesion. Then, throughout the projects, the teams(More)
