Dear modelling experts,

Welcome to the expert rating of our competence model for graphical modelling!


Within the KEA-Mod project (Competence-oriented e-assessment for graphical modelling) we are developing a competence model for graphical modelling in information technology and computing-related disciplines like e.g., Computer Science, Information Systems, Business Informatics or Software Engineering. The competence model addresses the required knowledge and skills regarding various modelling sub-fields, predominantly data modelling (ER-diagrams), software system modeling (UML) and business process modeling (BPMN, EPC, Petri nets). Subsequently, we want to build a competence-oriented e-assessment platform on the basis of this competence model.

The competence facets described in the competence model were derived from existing literature. We have analyzed curricula recommendations for modelling courses as well as module descriptions of our own courses with regard to graphical modelling.

Objective of this study:

This questionnaire serves to assess and evaluate the first draft of the competence model by experts from the modeling community. We want to determine, whether the identified competence facets sufficiently reflect the competences for graphical modelling. The competence model will be further developed and adapted on the basis of your expert ratings.

The questionnaire:

It will take about 30-45 minutes to answer the questionnaire.
The questionnaire consists of 7 pages.
First, we would like to ask you to answer a few questions about your professional background, experience, and specialization in modelling. Subsequently the structure of the competency model will be presented to you. This is followed by the main part of the questionnaire in which you are asked to assess the competence facets. To keep your processing time as short as possible, you will not be asked to assess the entire competency model. An extract from the competency model with only one part of the competency facets is assigned to you randomly. Finally, we will ask you some questions to assess the competence model as a whole.

The project network:

The KEA-Mod project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and is implemented by the following partners: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE), University of Paderborn (UPB) and the German Informatics Society (GI).

We would like to ask you to take the time to fill in the questionnaire and to support us in the competence modelling.We are grateful for your comments and suggestions for improvement.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly using the contact details below.

Sincerely yours
Chantal Soyka
University of Paderborn, Germany

To start the expert rating, it is necessary to agree to the declaration of consent.

By completing the questionnaire, it is necessary to collect personal data. In particular, this is information about your professional group, your experience and your specialization in the field of modelling. This serves to ascertain the expert status of the respondents. The survey is anonymous and the results will be treated with absolute confidentiality and will only be used for research and study purposes in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). It is not possible to identify or assign answers from a single person.
