Requirements Analysis and Design is found to be one of the crucial subjects in Software Engineering education. Students need to have deeper understanding before they could start to analyse and design the requirements, either using models or textual descriptions. However, the outcomes of their analysis are always vague and error-prone. We assume that this issue can be handled if “pair analysis” is conducted where all students are assigned with partners following the concept of pair-programming. To prove this, we have conducted a small preliminary evaluation to compare the outcomes of solo work and “pair analysis” work for three different groups of students. The performance, efficacy and students' satisfaction and confidence level are evaluated.
