Design and implementation of a competency repository

Software engineering has become increasingly important over the last years, not only for computer scientists. The research project EVELIN (Experimental improVEment of Learning software engINeering) aims at identifying competencies which should students have, and didactic approaches that most appropriate to foster a set of given competencies in the context of software engineering. In this context, a web-based software system for storing research documents and research results has been designed and implemented. Important features of this software are its ability to store competencies and competency profiles, represent them in a graphical manner, and link them to courses and didactic approaches. The repository and its data model are supposed to form the basis for in-depth analyses of influences on the teaching and learning of software engineering – for example by using data-mining methods. In the future, the software should actively support lecturers and educational scientists in their work on improving software engineering education.
