Grade of 0.0 for any assignment
I'm a research assistant at my university, and in our project we want to use an automated grading tool to help tutors grade students' programming assignments.
I found Web-CAT to be a very professional and interesting such tool, and I got it installed on my Tomcat server.
However, I would have some questions:
- When I create an assignment and then want to submit a zip file (I took the example assignment submission packages from http://wiki.web-cat.org/WCWiki/TryOutWebCat/UsageInstructions -- the Java calculator examples.), I always get a grade of 0.0 / 100.0.
I ensured all my plugins were installed; could I know what might be causing this (in fact, it seems as though the code analysis does not work)?
- My second question is regarding the MySQL database Web-CAT uses. Can Web-CAT use an existing MySQL database such as that Moodle uses? For example, if we want to integrate this tool in our university, we would like to just use the existing Moodle MySQL database with all courses, students, tutors, etc. Is this possible?
And does Web-CAT support other databases such as PostgreSQL or Derby?
