Racket Programming with ASSISTments Public

open in viewer

In my experience as a Senior Assistant with the WPI Department of Computer Science, getting students to try what they have learned and giving them the tools to help themselves when they get stuck helps them most. My advisor, Professor Joseph Beck, picked up teaching 1101 recently and uses the ASSISTments platform to assign his students to watch video lectures and answer comprehension questions; however, ASSISTments is mainly focused on tutoring mathematics, so composing complex programming questions in ASSISTments is an uphill battle. The goal of this project is to introduce a new ASSISTments problem type that allows students to submit their own Racket programs and to receive immediate feedback, as well as to let teachers assess how their students’ progress.
