Abstract : Physical description: 1 VHS video; 1/2 in.; col.; mono.; standard playback sp. This educational materials package was developed for instructors of software verification techniques in graduate and undergraduate software engineering courses, and for those who teach industrial continuing education courses on the meaning and methods of software inspections. Software inspections are a low-tech, highly effective verification technique. Research has consistently shown that the detect detection rate of inspections is higher than that of many traditional testing techniques. This package include materials for demonstrating how to perform an inspection and also for 'selling' students on the effectiveness of inspections. It complements EM-5, 'Scenes from Software Inspections, ' providing additional background material and exercises for using that set of educational materials.
