Automated Homework Generation and Grading with R

In this talk I will show how one can use R to simulate personalized assignments and to automatically grade them. This is particularly useful if one wants to make sure that students in large introductory statistics courses do their homework individually. We have successfully implemented this strategy in our introductory statistics course for engineers that is taken by about 400 students. In this course students are assigned two homework for which they have to analyze their own individual randomly generated datasets. A few R scripts generate the datasets and take care of the grading.
