Using T-Reqs As Teaching Solution For Requirements Engineering In Second Cycle University Courses
RE education should be realistic and reflect the progress reached within industry . Recently, T-Reqs has been proposed as a simple, yet powerful tool to manage system requirements in large-scale Agile development within industry. This study will investigate whether T-Reqs can be used in RE education, by proposing a concept for using it in a Master level requirements engineering course. In order to achieve this, a design science research was performed. Multiple course stakeholders, instruments and artefacts will be involved in discovering the course challenges and addressing them with T-Reqs. The final decision incorporating new teaching evaluation and assessment directions will be given by the current RE team and discussed with other teachers. The first iteration of the study ends with a list of existing RE challenges, some of which have been addressed with T-Reqs and for which a student training material was produced. It is accompanied by teaching assessment remarks on how to didactically proceed with T-Reqs’ introduction to the course. The results of the first iteration of this study suggest that T-Reqs can be introduced in the next instance of the RE Master course as a recommended auxiliary/helping RE tool. Consequently, students would try T-Reqs and provide further feedback in order to continue improving it.
