Measuring the difficulty of code comprehension tasks using software metrics

Abstract

In this paper we report on an empirical study into the use of software metrics as a way of estimating the difficulty of code comprehension tasks. Our results indicate that software metrics can provide useful information about the difficulties inherent in code tracing in first year programming assessment. We conclude that software metrics may be a useful… (More)
