Abstract

Courses in computer science curricula often involve group programming assignments. In this paper, we present the GitCanary tool for monitoring project progress and member contributions using development productivity metrics. The tool is developed to support teachers and students with an overview that they can use during their guidance sessions. Feedback on the tool and its metrics was collected from students and teachers using interviews and questionnaires after utilizing it in a software development course. The results that the tool provides were found to be valuable in project guidance and to promote transparency in work distribution.
