[edit] Abstract

Wiki technology, represented by Wikipedia, has attracted serious concern due to its capability to support collaboratively online contents' creation in a flexible and simple manner. Under the guidance of Wiki technology, developing specific wiki-based requirements management tools, namely RE-specific wikis, through extending various open source wikis to support distributed requirements engineering activities becomes a hot research topic. Many RE-specific wikis, such as RE-Wiki, SOP-Wiki and WikiWinWin, have been developed. But how to evaluate its collaboration effectiveness and easiness still needs further study. Based on Cognition-Behavior Consistency Decision Triangle (CBCDT), a Collaboration Effectiveness and Easiness Evaluation Method (CE3M) for evaluating RE-specific wikis is proposed. As to a specific RE-specific wiki, it evaluates the consistencies from three aspects: the expectations of its designers, the cognitions of its users and the behavior significations of its users. Specifically, the expectations of its designers and the cognitions of users are got from investigation; the behavior significations are gained from experts' investigation according to their opinions on the statistical data of the users' collaboration behaviors. And then, the consistencies' evaluations based on statistical hypothesis testing are performed. Through the case study, it shows that CE3M is appropriate to discover the similarities and differences among the expectations, cognitions and behaviors. These insights gained can be used as the objective evidences of RE-specific wiki's evolution decisions.
