High Coverage Hint Generation for Massive Courses by Sumukh Sridhara Research Project

  title={High Coverage Hint Generation for Massive Courses by Sumukh Sridhara Research Project},
  author={S. Sridhara and Phitchaya Phothilimthana and John DeNero},
In massive programming courses, automated hint generation o↵ers the promise of zero-cost, zero-latency assistance for students who are struggling to make progress on solving a program. While a more robust hint generation approach based on path construction requires tremendous engineering e↵ort to build, another easier-to-build approach based on program mutations su↵ers from low coverage. This paper describes a robust hint generation system that extends the coverage of the mutation-based… CONTINUE READING
