    Abstract

    One of the largest challenges facing educators teaching object-oriented courses is deciding how to evaluate each students programming skill. This research focus on how we addressed this challenge in object oriented programming course by proposing a new assessment method to assess students' object-oriented programming skills. The process begins by identifying generic object-oriented skills that students should acquired. In this paper we discuss the approach taken in the process of identifying the object-oriented skills, i.e. Delphi technique. Delphi technique is a structured multi-step process that uses a group of experts to achieve a consensus opinion. We present the methodology of three Delphi processes to identify object-oriented programming skills. The identified skills will be used to guide both the coverage of student learning assessments and can be used by instructors to identify what topics merit emphasis.
