Automated Assessment of Basic C Programming using Pseudo-Code Comparison Technique

This is the tool to execute the above mentioned experiment. I’m providing the code so that any interested party can improve this experiment.


Programming exercise is an important activity in learning any programming language. In order to acquire the skill to program is by doing a lot of programming exercises. However, if the instructors give more exercises, the more workload they will bear to assess and grade all the exercises submitted by their students. The workload can be reduced if the instructors are provided with a tool that can assesses and grades the programming exercises automatically. Automated programming assessment is a method to evaluate and to grade students’ programming exercises without the hassle of doing it manually. This application is developed to assess student C programming exercises based on the pseudocodes. The purpose of this project is to find the percentage of the pseudocode similarity between student’s answer and the instructor’s scheme. The method used in the software is by translating the students’ programming answer and all the instructors’ answer schemes into pseudocode. The software will compare the students’ pseudocode with all the pseudocode from the instructors’ answer schemes. The highest percentage of similarities will be chosen for the mark. A test has been carried out to compare marks given by the software with the marks given manually by the instructor. The result is 95% of the marks given by the software are similar to the marks given by the instructor. From this research, programming instructor could assess their students’ programming answer automatically in a faster and more efficient manner.

The PDF version is here: The test data is here: Khirulnizam Abd Rahman, Faculty of Information Science & Technology, KUIS Abstract: Proverb is a unique feature of Malay language in which a message or advice is not communicated indirectly through metaphoric phrases. However, the use of proverb will cause confusion or misinterpretation if one does not familiar with the phrases since they cannot be translated literally. This paper will discuss the process of automated filtering of Malay proverb in Malay text. The next process is translation. In machine translatio

Most used STRING functions in my PHP coding

These are my favourite string manipulation functions in my daily coding life. Dedicated especially to Web Programming students. Read them and have fun. Expect a happiness after a storm , and you’ll find your “inner peace”… This post is still in draft. I’ll update and refine with more examples that I’ve personally develop. More after the break…
