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.
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.
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 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).
