An Online Automated Scoring System for Java Programming Assignments

Hiroki Kitaya and Ushio Inoue

Abstract—This paper proposes a web-based system that automatically scores programming assignments for students. The system receives a Java application program submitted by a student and returns the test result immediately. The test consists of compiler check, JUnit test, and result test. The result test is very useful for students in elementary programming courses, because a typical program is composed of only a main method that reads/writes data from/to the standard input/output devices. The system is used experimentally in an actual course of our university. We confirmed that the accuracy of scoring is very high and the response time of the system is satisfactory.

Index Terms—Automated scoring, java programming assignments, web systems, learning systems.
