Automated Homework System: Improving Teaching Quality by Utilizing Technology

PI Farshid Azadian

One of the essential elements in improving the students' skills and abilities and helping them to better understand the course materials is homework assignments. A well designed and purposeful homework not only enhances the student's understanding but also may provide valuable feedback to instructors.

However, the process of designing and grading homework assignments are laborious from the instructor's perspective for large classes. Moreover, similarity of the assignments for all students set the stage for potential plagiarism which when is left undetected can set an undesirable ethical precedence.
In this research, our objective is to provide an automated procedure that assists instructors to utilize homework assignments more productively and reduces the possibility of unethical practices. Our main idea is to create a tool that uses the existing teaching resources to produce individual (non-identical) homework assignments for each student, automatically grade them and provide feedback to students.
