This paper reports the results of a case study where two different reflection mechanisms were used in a couple of graduate courses in the area of software engineering. A learning journal was used in a Software Testing course whereas a two-part reflection questionnaire was used in the Software Quality Assurance course. We evaluated the reflection mechanisms from the student’s perspective by means of a survey, and from the teacher’s perspective through a qualitative assessment of observed strengths and limitations. We analyzed some of the results obtained from implementing both approaches and reach some conclusions on how to improve our reflection method.
