- I do not understand why this course is mandatory for Software Engineering students from GU. In my optinion, Agile Development Processes should be mandatory for all Software Engineering students. I think Model-Based Testing fits more into the Computer Science field.» (University of Gothenburg)

- The exams are not stating weather a student has learned well the topic of a course. It is just an indication. So the examination system that we should achieve a least amount of points in every question is not fair at all. We cannot remember every single topic of the course during the exams. It is not possible to like different sectors of the course the same. So it is normal that we forget the things that we don"t like. That does not mean that we do not understand the course. At some situations we can be unlucky too and simply not remember something during the exam. So it is not fair for us to have a certain amount of points gained in all of the questions.» (No, not at all)
- The way the exam was set up did not assess whether I have reached the goals. Most of the questions were sentences that had to be marked as true or false. A lot of those were very ambigous. So, the exam rather tested whether we are able to identify what the lecturer meant. » (To some extent)
- The exam tested all parts of the course, that you need points on all questions was good for making sure the student knows the course goal » (Yes, definitely)

- I say badly here because the course did not use PingPong. There was nothing on the course web page that couldn"t had been done in PingPong. Heck, the hand-ins would have been much simpler to administrate even (!).» (Rather badly)

- The teaching assistant could only help us with Haskell questions. In all other areas, his knowledge was rather poor.» (Rather poor)
- Questions and answers were rather vague at most. Lot of opportunity for interpretation in questions while the supervisor sometimes did not know the answer himself or was unable to help to a valuable extend.» (Rather poor)
- Teacher gave very confusing answers. The teaching assistant was unprepared for some labs which lead to non-existing help.» (Rather poor)
- The workshops where really bad. The teacher assistant most of times did not know how to help us. He haa a paper with the solutions and was checking whether our solution was close to his. If our question did not have an answer in the paper, then we just didn"t get any.» (Rather poor)
- I felt that the teacher assistant was not really well prepared for his job» (Rather poor)
- But not good in practical sessions with teaching assisatnt.» (Rather good)
- I felt that I was able to send an email or visit the teacher if I had a question.» (Very good)

- The course was about Model Based Testing and the models were only discussed once. Many students did not even understand the cause of this course. We paid too much time on the first weeks for simple things, while the models which were important and difficult were given too little time» (Poor)

15. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The whole layout of the course»
- Supervised assignment supervision. Question and interactions during lectures.»
- All material are good can be preserved.»
- - Open book exam»
- Probably nothing»
- The ability to carry with us whatever we want to the exam.»
- The assignments with the help hours.»
- Teacher was very interested in teaching and really wanted to help students.»

16. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Clearer guidelines to prevent the workload from becoming too high in certain groups.»
- Make the projects mandatory(part of the final grade) and get a new teaching assistant.»
- Not use comic sans font on lecture slides and have more demanding exercises, they were to easy »
- Clear the goal, have more practice»
- This course should not be mandatory for Software Engineering students from GU!»
- The assignment supervisor should be able to give better help.»
- more examples on quickchecks»
- - Remove QuickCheck part from the exam. I don"t think it is very useful in real life, thus not worth spending too much effort studying for the exam.»
- Skip the property-based testing parts. They only lead to confusion and most student will not have the sufficient functional programming skills to cope with it anyway. Focus on model-based testing instead, especially the last calculator lab were we actually did a model and tested a SUT against it. Do more of that!»
- The way of the lectures, the subject in the lectures, the teacher assistant should at least know some things in the field of the course. The assignments should finish earlier. There is no meaning to have the most difficult assignment of the course when the course and the workshops have finished. If we have any problem then we cannot solve it and discuss it.»
- The examination system that we need at least some points to gain in every single question.»
- The difficulty of the assignments could be increased. I would have liked the course to be more focused on generating tests from models (including UML), rather than the beginning part.»
- A TA that is more intressted in teaching»
