The online grading and code review system demonstrated by Greg Wilson‘s students from the University of Toronto is really cool, and the kind of thing I’d love to see open-sourced and spread. I know my alma mater would find it handy!
Things I particularly like about it:
- You can highlight a region and attach either a predefined comment or a new comment.
- The support for rubrics makes grading much easier and more consistent.
Hmm, maybe the student view can be improved by making it easier for students to see all their projects.
- Per project views, etc.
- Accessibility guidelines
- Downloadable spreadsheets
- Usable for code reviews for open source projects? Won’t be grading, of course, but interesting for annotation…
