. Which of the following is not one of three software product aspects addressed by McCall's software quality factors?
  • ability to undergo change
  • adaptability to new environments
  • operational characteristics
  • production costs and scheduling
. The ISO 9126 quality standards for computer software are useful because they lend themselves to direct measurement of software attributes.
  • True
  • False
. Most testing metrics actually focus on the process of testing rather than the technical characteristics of the tests themselves.
  • True
  • False
. Testing effort can also be estimated using metrics derived from cylcomatic complexity.
  • True
  • False
. Most technical software metrics described in this chapter represent indirect measures software attributes that are useful in the quantitative assessment of software quality.
  • True
  • False
. Which these are reasons for using technical product measures during software development?
  • large body of scientific evidence supports their use
  • provides software engineers with an objective mechanism for assessing software quality
  • they allow all quality software quality information to be expressed unambiguously as a single number
  • all of the above
. Which measurement activity is missing from the list below?
  • Formulation
  • Collection
  • Analysis
  • Interpretation
  • design
  • feedback
  • measurement
  • quantification
. The Goal/Question/Metric (GQM) paradigm was developed as a technique for assigning blame for software failures.
  • True
  • False
. One of the most important attributes for a software product metric is that it should be
  • easy to compute
  • qualitative in nature
  • reliable over time
  • widely applicable
. In many cases metrics for one model may be used in later software engineering activities (e.g. design metrics may be used in test planning)
  • True
  • False
. The function point metric is an example of metric that can be used to assist with technical decision-making based on the analysis model information, without making use of historical project data
  • True
  • False
. The specification metrics proposed by Davis address which two characteristics of the software requirements?
  • functionality and performance
  • performance and completeness
  • specificity and completeness
  • specificity and functionality
. Architectural design metrics focus on
  • architectural structure
  • data structural relationships
  • internal module complexity
  • module effectiveness
  • a and d
. Which of the following is not a measurable characteristic of an object-oriented design?
  • completeness
  • efficiency
  • size
  • volatility
. The depth of inheritance tree (DIT) metric can give an OO software designer a reading on the
  • attributes required for each class
  • completion time required for system implementation
  • complexity of the class hierarchy
  • level of object reusability achieved
. Because the class is the dominant unit in OO systems there is no call for the definition of class-oriented metrics.
  • True
  • False
. If you encounter a class with a large responsibility (large class size or CS value) you should consider
  • making it a base class
  • making it a subclass
  • partitioning the class
  • starting a new class hierarchy
. Component-level metrics include measures of
  • complexity
  • coupling
  • module cohesion
  • performance
  • a, b, c
. Because the class is the dominant unit in OO systems very few metrics have been proposed for operations that reside within a class.
  • True
  • False
. Interface metrics are use to assess the complexity of the module's input and output relationships with external devices.
  • True
  • False
. Most WebApps can be easily characterized by judicious use of widely recognized suites of software metrics?
  • True
  • False
. Halstead's source code metrics are based on the number of
  • modules in the program
  • operands in the program
  • operators in the program
  • volume elements in the program
  • b and c
. Software testing metrics fall into two broad categories
  • metrics that focus on defect removal effectiveness
  • metrics that focus on test coverage
  • metrics that estimate the duration of the testing process
  • metrics that predict the number of test cases required
  • b and d
. The IEEE software maturity index (SMI) is used to provide a measure of the
  • maintainability of a software product based on its availability
  • relative age of a software product being considered for retirement
  • reliability of a software product following regression testing
  • stability of a software product as it is modified during maintenance
