Fostering deep and meaningful self-reflection that leads to action, growth, and personal change among students challenges professors of large classes. Over 280 students in a single lecture course on critical thinking were asked to take part in a selfanalysis and also were provided multisource (360°) feedback. The combination of personalized feedback from(More)
“Designing quality in” is a cornerstone of modern quality management philosophies. Design for X (DfX) techniques provide guidelines, heuristics, and metrics to ensure that a particular quality attribute exists in a design. Although hundreds of papers have been published on DfX approaches, few researchers have explored systematically applying multiple DfX in(More)
This exploratory study used the R Statistical Software to perform Monte Carlo simulation of time maps, which characterize events based on the elapsed time since the last event and the time that will transpire until the next event, and compare them to time maps from real Twitter users. Time maps are used to explore differences in the interarrival patterns of(More)
Ensuring high-quality software requires considering the social climate within which the applications will be deployed and used. This can be done by designing quality goals and objectives that are consistent with changing social and ethical landscapes. Using principles of technological determinism, this article presents three cases that illustrate why it is(More)
With minimal training in assessment design, professors must generate high quality examinations that fairly assess student accomplishment of course objectives. Multiple choice questions are frequently used for this assessment, but often do not address learning objectives, are misinterpreted, and if reused, may challenge the integrity of some students. It is(More)
Poor software quality can adversely affect application security by increasing the potential for a malicious breach of a system. Because computer security and cybersecurity are becoming such relevant topics for practicing software engineers, the need for educational opportunities in this area is steadily increasing. Universities and colleges have recognized(More)
Chatbots are one class of intelligent, conversational software agents activated by natural language input (which can be in the form of text, voice, or both). They provide conversational output in response, and if commanded, can sometimes also execute tasks. Although chatbot technologies have existed since the 1960’s and have influenced user interface(More)
There is no standard yet for measuring and controlling the costs associated with implementing cybersecurity programs. To advance research and practice towards this end, we develop a mapping using the well-known concept of quality costs and the Framework Core within the Cybersecurity Framework produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology(More)
