Forum .LRN Q&A: RFC: Semi-automatic correction system
The documentation I've developed explaining this system is at:
I'm asking for for comments on the system, if there's something similar already developed or in development or if you think this is a good functionality to have in OpenACS.
I put a PDF version of the postscript here, for those on Postscript-viewer-impaired systems: http://www.brasileiro.net/roberto/bin/system_correction_manual.pdf
For additional functionality you will probably want to add workflow.
What sort of automated correction are you envisioning? You may want to use some functionality from survey for that.
Sounds like a great project. Thanks for doing it!
I'll start looking to the homework package and look for more ideas.
The kind of automatic correction I thought is checking for huge errors or spelling or cheating or tests like: the code compiles at all? (if it does not compile just bounce it without professor knowing at all)
