Building up an understanding of aspects of quality, and how to critically assess them, is a complex problem. This paper provides an overview of research on student conceptions of what constitutes quality in different programming domains. These conceptions are linked to tertiary education and computing education research results. Using this literature as a background we discuss how to develop and use instructional approaches that might assist students in developing a better understanding of software quality.
