Student and Staff Perceptions of Key Aspects of Computer Science Engineering Capstone Projects

Student and Staff Perceptions of Key Aspects of Computer Science Engineering Capstone Projects

“The primary finding of this study is that the students' expectations differ greatly from those of staff. In particular, students tend to have a better opinion of their project, their competencies, and the supervision received than does the staff. However, advisors and evaluation committees have a similar opinion about projects characteristics. The students' perception of their learning, furthermore, is not always consistent with the grade obtained or student satisfaction.” (p.45)
