Gaining insight into what students experience in a course in software engineering is essential to the continuous development of the course design. The growing use of agile approaches in professional settings has facilitated their introduction into training and undergraduate courses in software engineering. This paper reports a case study of student participation in a course project by using a previously presented training model. We aimed to assess how students felt with the training model when conducting the 5 Scrum events: Sprint Planning, Daily Meeting, Sprint, Sprint Review, and Sprint Retrospective. To achieve our goal, we applied a 22-item survey to 31 undergraduate students to gather students’ opinions. Results showed that most students had a positive opinion about team communication, the position of Scrum Master, Sprint goals definition, and guidance using meetings as a means of checkpoints.
