Abstract This module introduces the concept of software quality and presents software quality attribute models. It is designed for use with first year students in software engineering or other computing disciplines. The expectation is that this may be a student's first exposure to the concept of software quality. As such, the material is organizes around defining quality independent of considering software, discussing quality of software in particular, and introducing the notion of trade-offs.
