Developing online learning and assessment tools for formal languages and
compilers
Synopsis of the Project
This project will construct tools to evaluate students’ solutions to problems about formal
languages and compilers. These are topics of the redesigned course COSC261, which is
required for all computer science, software engineering and computer engineering
students. Problems in this area usually have infinitely many possible solutions. The tools
will automatically check students’ answers and point out errors faster and more reliably
than humans. Students, tutors and lecturers can spend more time on understanding errors
and on improving solutions. The tools will be implemented in Moodle (an interactive
learning environment used by Learn) and will support both learning and assessment.
