The CMMI is a model for improving and appraising the performance of development organizations. It stands for “Capability Maturity Model Integration”. It is published and developed by the Software Engineering Institute in Pittsburgh, PA. The CMMI is best known for its five levels of organizational maturity namely initial, managed process, defined process, and quantitatively managed process and optimizing process. Each level represents a coherent set of best practices organizations are expected to implement as they become better at what they do.
CMMI methodology at Level 5 (optimizing process) of requires that an organization assess its performance against certain parameters and use this information for process improvement. This applies to university programs as well as to the software development organizations.
For Computer Science there is a nationally nor med test developed by the Educational Testing Service, which will provide comparative national results. Dr.
