This paper is a demonstration of an a priori method to assess the potential effectiveness of a software development curriculum. This method was used to determine the extent to which a curriculum may address the causes of software project failure (SPF). This type of evaluation is not intended to replace traditional methods of posteriori evaluation (e.g. surveys of alumni and employers), but we hope that it will be used to enhance curriculum development.
