. The terms measure, measurement, and metric all share the same definition according to the IEEE Standard Glossary of Software Engineering Terms.
  • True
  • False
. Which of these are valid reasons for measuring software processes, products, and resources?
  • to characterize them
  • to evaluate them
  • to price them
  • to improve them
  • a, b, d
. Process indicators enable a software project manager to
  • assess the status of an on-going project
  • track potential risks
  • adjust work flow or tasks
  • none of the above
. Public metrics are used
  • to evaluate the performance of software development teams.
  • to appraise the performance of individual team members.
  • to make strategic changes to the software process.
  • to make tactical changes during a software project.
  • c and d
. Which of the following items are not measured by software project metrics?
  • inputs
  • markets
  • outputs
  • results
. Software quality and functionality must be measured indirectly.
  • True
  • False
. Which of following are advantages of using LOC (lines of code) as a size-oriented metric?
  • LOC is easily computed.
  • LOC is a language dependent measure.
  • LOC is a language independent measure.
  • LOC can be computed before a design is completed.
. Which of the following are advantages of using function points (FP) as a measure of the functionality delivered by a software application?
  • FP is easily computed
  • FP is a language dependent measure.
  • FP is a language independent measure
  • FP can be computed before a design is completed
  • c and d
. There is no need to reconcile LOC and FP measures since each in meaningful in its own right as a project measure.
  • True
  • False
. Object-Oriented project measures may be combined with historical project data to provide metrics that aid in project estimation
  • True
  • False
. Use-Case oriented metrics are computed directly from UML diagrams they are often used as normalization measures.
  • True
  • False
. Which of the following is not a measure that can be collected from a Web application project?
  • Customization index
  • Number of dynamic objects
  • Number of internal page links
  • Number of static web pages
. Which of the following software quality factors is most likely to be affected by radical changes to computing architectures?
  • operation
  • transition
  • revision
  • none of the above
. Which of the following provide useful measures of software quality?
  • correctness, performance, integrity, usability
  • reliability, maintainability, integrity, sales
  • correctness, maintainability, size, satisfaction
  • correctness, maintainability, integrity, usability
. A software quality metric that can be used at both the process and project levels is defect removal efficiency (DRE).
  • True
  • False
. Why is it important to measure the process of software engineering and software it produces?
  • It is really not necessary unless the project is extremely complex.
  • To determine costs and allow a profit margin to be set.
  • To determine whether a software group is improving or not.
  • To make software engineering more like other engineering processes
. To be an effective aid in process improvement the baseline data used must be:
  • based on reasonable guestimates from past projects
  • measured consistently across projects
  • drawn from similar projects
  • based on all previously completed projects
  • b and c
. Baseline data must be collected in an on-going manner and cannot be computed by formal study of historical project data
  • True
  • False
. Small software organizations are not likely to see any economic return from establishing software metrics program
  • True
  • False
. The software metrics chosen by an organization are driven by the business or technical goals an organization wishes to accomplish.
  • True
  • False
