Abstract

We design and study ExamParser, an innovative intelligent semantic automatic indexing method, for orchestrating today's programming classes. ExamParser automatically processes paper-based exams by associating sets of concepts to the exam questions, which provide graders semantic grading guidelines and leave personalized semantic feedback. Results showed that the ExamPraser significantly extract more and diverse concepts from exams. It also achieves high coherence within exam, indicating the automatic concept extraction from exams is promising and could be a potential technological solution to provide personalized feedback for large-size programming classes.
