• Valuing evaluation: methodologies to bridge research and practice

      Kaskenpalo, P; MacDonell, SG (ACM Press, 2012)
      The potential disconnect between research and practice in software engineering (SE) means that the uptake of research outcomes has at times been limited. In this paper we seek to identify research approaches that are ...
    • Visualization and analysis of software engineering data using self-organizing maps

      Macdonell, S (IEEE Computer Society Press, 2005)
      There is no question that accuracy is an important requirement of classification and prediction models used in software engineering management. It is, however, just one of a number of attributes that contribute to a model ...
    • What accuracy statistics really measure

      Kitchenham, B; Pickard, L; MacDonell, SG; Shepperd, MJ (IEEE, 2001)
      Provides the software estimation research community with a better understanding of the meaning of, and relationship between, two statistics that are often used to assess the accuracy of predictive models: the mean magnitude ...
    • What affects team behavior? Preliminary linguistic analysis of communications in the Jazz repository

      Licorish, SA; MacDonell, SG (IEEE Computer Society PressAUT University, 2012)
      There is a growing belief that understanding and addressing the human processes employed during software development is likely to provide substantially more value to industry than yet more recommendations for the implementation ...
