13. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- project work»
- The structure of the project.»
- the project!»
- Project »
- Overview of different agile methods, and their differences and similarities. Those were interesting.»
- Project work»
- N/A»

- Having a project in a course such as this is a good idea, I think. It requires better/more supervision thought.»
- Teachers. And the feedbacks of the last lecture day. It"s a very nice tool to improve.»
- Yes»
- I think Ruben did a great job teaching»
- The material»
- Project»
- Project work in the lab»
- Labs.»
- Föreläsaren+programerings övningarna»
- lab must be preserved. it gives a gud insight of the Aglie method of working»
- The project, definitely. Perhaps give bonus points that reflect the project progress.»

14. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Less GUI in the project and longer iterations»
- Less laboratory sessions. »
- Moor teachers, better rooms..»
- examination way, it should be project based rather then theory as this course is about practical agile development exposure»
- Smaller rooms. More encouragement to make a really good product in the project and to really follow the practices. More reminders to keep following the practices.»
- Type of project. This year the project contained more UI stuffs so it became really hard to follow TDD. so instead of heavy UI project if the project where easily TDD usable then we would have learned better.»
- Project should have different, more easily testable topic.»
- More interesting projects. Maybe offer an external forum to share questions between all the students. Explain the whole planning game before start any work session.»
- Maybe even more foucs on different processes apart from XP»
- The project must be organized better.»
- Lectures, Testing lecture especially.»
- Labs too. I mean, there should be more guidance or passive control from the teachers in order to help students adopt quicker to a new development process.»
- Kör kursen i läsperiod 1 den är gjord för det»

15. Additional comments

- The exam was good for all but the last question (which was ca 23% of the exam), which was about something really irrelevant for the course.. Were we supposed to be experts on Lean or Agile for this course? I know that it was part of the course, but not at the extent of 23%? Very disappointed..»
- Exam questions marks were very badly divided. For example, There was one question of 14 marks and one was 5 marks and 5 marks question was 2 times more bigger then the 14 marks question...secondly 5 marks question was from the part extreme programming that we acctually learn during project (we spent 4 weeks on project and the main topic was extreme programming) and 14 marks question was from a topic "lean development" that was only disscussed in less then one lecture... it should not happen again becasue it affected every student of the class... and becasue of that hardly any body will get 5 grade, after putting a lots of effort during project,reading and remembering course material... this type of exams demotivate student and this is not fair.»
- over all course was good, though the 14 marks for a single question was rather surprising in final exam.»
- It might be interesting to try some other Agile process in the project. XP is , as was stated in the course, best used with experienced developers.»
- I liked the environment among students. »
