Abstract : This report describes software process assessment as it is performed in organizations with the assistance of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) . A software process assessment is an appraisal or review of an organization's software process (e.g., software development process). The main objectives of such an assessment are to understand the state of practice in an organization, to identify key areas for improvement, and to initiate the actions that facilitate those improvements. This report is specifically addressed to the organizations and assessment team members that may be involved in an SEI- assisted software process assessment. Keywords: Software development; Test and evaluation.
