Abstract

CodeRunner is a free open-source Moodle plugin for automatically marking student code. We describe our experience using CodeRunner for summative assessment in our first year undergraduate programming curriculum at Coventry University. We use it to assess both Python3 and C++14 code (CodeRunner supports other languages also). We give examples of our questions and report on how key metrics have changed following its use at Coventry.
