README.md

Autolab is a course management service, initially developed by a team of students at Carnegie Mellon University, that enables instructors to offer autograded programming assignments to their students over the Web. The two key ideas in Autolab are autograding, that is, programs evaluating other programs, and scoreboards.

Autolab also provides other services that instructors expect in a course management system, including gradebooks, rosters, handins/handouts, lab writeups, code annotation, manual grading, late penalties, grace days, cheat checking, meetings, partners, and bulk emails.

Since 2010, Autolab has had a transformative impact on education at CMU. Each semester, it is used by about 3,000 CMU students in courses in Pittsburgh, Silicon Valley, Qatar, and Rwanda. In Fall, 2014, we are releasing Autolab as an open-source system, where it will be available to schools all over the world, and hopefully have the same impact it's had at CMU.

Installation

We released new documentation! Check it out here.

Testing

Setting up Tests

  1. Add a test database in database.yml

  2. Create and migrate the database.

    RAILS_ENV=test bundle exec rake db:create
    RAILS_ENV=test bundle exec rake db:migrate

    Do not forget to use RAILS_ENV=test bundle exec in front of every rake/rails command.

  3. Create necessary directories.

    mkdir attachments/ tmp/
    

Running Tests

After setting up the test environment, simply run spec by:

bundle exec rake spec
