Technical Report HW-MACS-TR-0043

TitleExperiences with Online Programming Examinations
AuthorsMonica Farrow, Peter King
AbstractAn online programming examination was used to assess undergraduates who had learnt Java for two terms. The advantages are that the students are assessed on what they have to do in practice, rather than on their theoretical knowledge, and that the marking load on the examiner is drastically reduced. The style of question used and the results of the examination are analysed.
