An intelligent grader that allows secured and automated testing of code made by students.
INGInious is an intelligent grader that allows secured and automated testing of code made by students.
It is written in Python and uses Docker to run student’s code inside a secured environment.
INGInious provides a backend which manages interaction with Docker and grade code, and a frontend which allows students to submit their code in a simple and beautiful interface. The frontend also includes a simple administration interface that allows teachers to check the progression of their students and to modify exercices in a simple way.
The backend is independent of the frontend and was made to be used as a library.
INGInious can be used as an external grader for EDX. The course Paradigms of Computer Programming - Fundamentals uses INGInious to correct students’ code.
