ACE Grader

Automatic Code Evaluator and Grader

What is ACE Grader?

ACE Grader, as the name implies, is an automatic grading solution for programming exercises! It uses a combination of dynamic and static analysis in order to evaluate submitted programs.

What is static analysis?

Unlike dynamic analysis, which only looks at a program's output, static analysis looks at the program itself. For example, ACE Grader can check if a function is recursive, unlike most automatic grading software. This can be extremely useful for grading introductory programming exercises, where students must use a specific concept in order to solve a problem.
