Measuring programming experience

Janet Feigenspan, Christian Kastner, Jorg Liebig, Sven Apel, Stefan Hanenberg
2012 2012 20th IEEE International Conference on Program Comprehension (ICPC)  
Programming experience is an important confounding parameter in controlled experiments regarding program comprehension. In literature, ways to measure or control programming experience vary.  ...  We set out to find a well-defined understanding of programming experience and a way to measure it. From published comprehension experiments, we extracted questions that assess programming experience.  ...  We thank Jana Schumann for her support in the literature study and all experimenters for their support in setting up and conducting the experiment.  ...

An experiment to measure the usability of parallel programming systems

Duane Szafron, Jonathan Schaeffer
1996 Concurrency Practice and Experience  
The objective was to measure usability. This experiment provided valuable feedback as to what features of PPSs are useful and the benefits they provide during the development of parallel programs.  ...  Although many usability experiments have been conducted for sequential programming languages and environments, they are rare in the parallel programming domain.  ...  Renee Elio, Randal Kornelsen, Ian Parsons, Paul Iglinski, Robert Lake, Carol Smith and Bob Beck helped make this experiment possible.  ...

The Functional Measurement Experiment Builder suite: Two Java-based programs to generate and run functional measurement experiments

Olivier Mairesse, Joeri Hofmans, Peter Theuns
2008 Behavior Research Methods  
Although the FM Experiments Builder Suite was initially programmed for building and conducting FM experiments, it can also be applied for non-FM experiments that necessitate randomized, single or multi-factorial  ...  We propose a free, easy-to-use computer program to generate and run experiments using textual or pictorial stimuli which does not requires prior knowledge of computer programming.  ...  Setting up such computer experiments often necessitates programming skills or the acquisition of an expensive experiment generator package.  ...

Measuring Program Similarity: Experiments with SPEC CPU Benchmark Suites

A. Phansalkar, A. Joshi, L. Eeckhout, L.K. John
2005 IEEE International Symposium on Performance Analysis of Systems and Software, 2005. ISPASS 2005.  
The objective of this paper is to present a methodology to measure similarity of programs based on their inherent microarchitecture-independent characteristics which will make the results applicable to  ...  We apply our methodology to the SPEC CPU2000 benchmark suite and demonstrate that a subset of 8 programs can be used to effectively represent the entire suite.  ...  Cluster Analysis is used to group n cases in an experiment (benchmark programs) based on the measurements of the p principal components.  ...

Rewriting executable files to measure program behavior

James R. Larus, Thomas Ball
1994 Software, Practice & Experience  
Instrumenting executables permits complete and detailed measurements and simplifies the use of a measurement tool since programs need not be compiled or recompiled in a different manner to measure them  ...  Inserting instrumentation code in a program is an effective technique for detecting, recording, and measuring many aspects of a program's performance.  ...  Finally, a program must be recompiled to measure it, which increases the time and effort to study the program and which prevents measurement of precompiled programs.  ...

Family-based performance measurement

Norbert Siegmund, Alexander von Rhein, Sven Apel
2013 Proceedings of the 12th international conference on Generative programming: concepts & experiences - GPCE '13  
We evaluate our approach by means of five feature-oriented programs. On average, we achieve accuracy of 98 %, with only a single measurement per customizable program.  ...  Most contemporary programs are customizable. They provide many features that give rise to millions of program variants.  ...  In our experiments, we needed only a single run per subject program, as they do not contain any mutually exclusive features.  ...

Subgroup Analysis in Social Experiments: Measuring Program Impacts Based on Post-Treatment Choice

Laura R. Peck
2003 American Journal of Evaluation  
A fundamental question within the field of program evaluation is "Do social programs work?" Although experiments allow us to answer this question with certainty, they have some limitations.  ...  Experiments generate mean program impacts and even mean impacts by subgroup, but they often leave unexplored the impacts on subgroups determined by treatment use.  ...  As a result, the measured subgroup impacts are likely the result of variations in experience with the program instead of variation in personal traits.  ...
