MATLAB Grader

Ultra Ready LTI + REST
Summary

MATLAB Grader automatically grades MATLAB-based programming assignments

Details

MATLAB Grader is an application that offers:

  • Browser-based authoring environment
  • Creation and sharing of MATLAB-based assignments
  • Autograded student solutions with custom scoring rubrics
  • Rich text, images, hyperlinks, and LaTeX equations in problem descriptions
  • Responsive layout for use beyond desktops for all users
  • Library of re-usable example problems
  • LMS integration using LTI to bring auto grading into any learning environment

Unlike grading traditional homework assignments with MATLAB code by hand, our offering provides automatic reviews and grading of students’ MATLAB code. In addition, it offers real-time feedback to students, access to the latest version of MATLAB and toolboxes for use in assessments, and integration within the institution’s learning management system and grade book (using LTI standards).

As a result, grades are calculated and synced to the grade book automatically, without manual effort by teaching assistants, instructors, or faculty.  Faculty can jump-start course development using off the shelf content and re-use or re-mix content from past courses. Students' solutions are all created using the same version of MATLAB and without their having to leave the course site. Real-time feedback helps students learn from their mistakes, improving overall academic performance.

MATLAB Grader requires a separate paid MATLAB Grader license and is only available to academic enterprise users of MATLAB (Campus-Wide License or Community and Technical College License customers). To purchase a MATLAB Grader license, please contact your MathWorks account representative at https://www.mathworks.com/company/aboutus/contact_us/contact_sales.html

Once you have obtained a license for MATLAB Grader, detailed installation instructions, based on your LMS, are available at https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlabgrader/lms-integration.html
