Developing software by teams which adopted the agile development methodology such as Scrum seems totally natural in industry.
On the other hand, students belonging to graduate schools of information science who have some experience on the agile team software development are rare.
In the initial education on the Scrum, there exists some challenges.
The first one is a concept of self-organization.
In the Scrum project, members of the team determine how best to accomplish the tasks by themselves.
However, it is challenging for students with less experience on team software development to cultivate the self-organizing team by themselves.
The 2nd one is inequality on task assignment.
In the Scrum project, each member pulls tasks to perform, and do not wait to be assigned by Project Manager.
The assignment behavior may cause inequality on task assignment.
As a result, such inequality may also cause inequality on learning opportunities to acquire skills and knowledge on the process and the product.
In this paper, we propose quantitative assessment methods for the Scrum project with using TiDD(Ticket Driven Development) for the initial education on the Scrum framework and web application production.
We report on our basic PBL(Project-Based Learning) course which involved 49 students.
The use of quantitative criteria enabled students and teachers to assess the Scrum projects in the viewpoints of quality, assignment, and delivery of projects.
