Automatic assessment reduces the need for individual feedback in massive courses, but often focuses only on scoring solutions, rather than assessing whether students correctly understand problems. We present an enriched approach to automatic assessment that explicitly assists students in understanding the detailed specification of technical problems that they are asked to solve, in addition to evaluating their solutions. Students are given a suite of solution test cases, but they must first… Expand
