Abstract

Education in the 21st century is quickly moving away from the traditional homework structure. A new generation of technologically adept students is accustomed to working at their own pace and receiving instantaneous feedback. Few institutions have the resources to offer around-the-clock human graders, and the recent economic downturn has actually reduced the number of grader hours and increased class sizes. There is a clear and urgent need for a sophisticated system which can analyze student error, assign partial credit, and provide detailed feedback to the student through the use of a web-based program that is not only easy to use, but also sophisticated and powerful in its user-facing methods and functions. The Automated Partial Credit Grader (APCG) specifically addresses these problems through the creation and use of a powerful graphical user interface that makes the system easier to use than other systems and not only rivals the usability of standard paper and pencil, but in some ways surpasses it. This poster details the conception and construction of the APCG system's graphical user interface.
