A framework that takes care of boundary tasks to ease task evaluations and make them faster.

Project description


'Gradefast Logo'

Gradefast is a framework whose intention is to make eYRC evaluations faster and bring a standardization across task evaluations. Most important benefit is that the test scripts can then be extended and be reused in other themes having similar tasks. Primary thought behind making GradeFast is to take care of all the boundary tasks that happen in theme evaluations and also make utility scripts that take care of other common tasks so that a lot of time is saved. Some of these tasks are downloading new submissions, iterating over each of the submission folders, easily finding files to test, comments based on criterias, uploading marks and plagiarism checking. The framework is also easy to use causing less to no cognitive load on a theme developer using it.

Installing gradefast

Installing from pip

$ pip install gradefast


Installing from sources

  1. $ git clone
  2. $ cd GradeFast-2019
  3. $ git checkout develop
  4. $ pip install .

Creating a gradefast project

Do this once [sudo permissions may be required]

  1. npm install -g yo
  2. npm install -g generator-gradefast

Then generate your new project like this

yo gradefast


  1. Submission downloading
  2. Plagiarism checking
  3. Primarily built for python but can support evaluation of any other tasks
  4. Aggregate results
  5. Upload marks
  6. Add comments

Also includes

  1. Detailed error logging
  2. Timing and static code analysis of scripts
  3. Resume tasks from where they are stopped
  4. Checking test conventions
  5. Boilerplate code generation

Running tests

  1. For unit tests: python -m unittest discover -s tests/unit/
  2. For integration tests: python -m unittest discover -s tests/unit/

Checking coverage

  1. Install pip install coverage
  2. Run coverage run --source=gradefast/ -m unittest discover -s tests/unit/ or coverage run --source=gradefast/ -m unittest discover -s tests/integration/
  3. Generate static html coverage html
  4. cd htmlcov and run http server with live-server or python3 -m http.server

Building and running documentation

Installing required packages

  1. $ pip install sphinx_ustack_theme and pip install sphinx_rtd_theme.
  2. $ pip install --upgrade sphinx

Building docs

  1. $ cd docs
  2. $ make html

Running web server to host documentation

  1. $ cd docs/_build/html

  2. Start a web server in this directory. You can use either the python 3 HTTP server or live-server.

    $ python3 -m http.server

Future work

  • Statistics and analysis of results
  • Sandboxed environments
  • Multi-programming
  • Refactoring
  • Plugins API
