Verification of programming approach in programming tasks solving

Summary

In the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology the Programming Skills Development System was created and implemented. Its main goal is to provide a model and tools for in-depth analysis and assessment of students programming task’s solutions. System includes tools for automatic verification of programming style and meeting the set of requirements in student’s solutions. The distinctive feature of the proposed tools is the ability to set by educators their own rules of assessment in a variety of ways (appropriately to their knowledge, skills and preferences). These tools are also characterized by simplicity of use, which is of great importance for their practical application. The article discusses the construction of verification tools and methods of defining tests for various problems related to the quality of programming. Presented tools and procedures can be particularly useful in e-learning environment.
