Abstract

Tagging offers a traceability mechanism for software development by connecting artifacts in a meaningful way. Our integrated courseware, SEREBRO, provides a framework of tools that capture conversation and artifact creation and modification throughout the software development lifecycle by student team members developing non-trivial software products in a Software Engineering course. Using a data driven approach, we investigate the use of lightweight tagging mechanisms applied by student software project teams and present some preliminary results of this investigation.
