    Abstract

    A system has been developed for providing automated assessment in CS1. During the academic year 2004-2005 this system was evaluated empirically by examining a sample group of students using both the traditional assessment methods and also the automated techniques, four times during the year. A significant correlation was found between the performance in both tests however the correlation was only strong for students who performed well during the year.
