One of the most challenging tasks of teaching an undergraduate software engineering team project course is monitoring the progress of individual teams. At Arizona State University our undergraduate software engineering class is routinely taught with 50 students broken into 10 software development teams. The teams work on a realistic project for 15 weeks beginning with the development of a requirements document and ending with acceptance testing of a fully documented product. The challenge for the instructor is to monitor the progress of each of the teams as well as their individual members. Ideally metrics should also be gathered providing both the instructor and individual teams with quantitative comparative information
