Development of a Web-Based Tool for the Assistance in Code-Readability Experiments


Your task in this thesis will be creating a tool for the assistance in online-experiments, particularly in code-readability. The development is to be carried out in php having a database connection.

Goals of your work are:

  • Administration of multiple participants
  • Random selection of tasks
  • preferably accurate time measurement
  • Displaying the results in a text-file
  • eA preferably flexible enhancement possibility for following varieties of experiments (different number of groups, conditional execution of questions, examination of written source code)
  • Exemplary implementation of a planned experiment
