    Is there programming tools for university and school teachers to help them fully automate the process of correcting programming code from students for exams, for example a basic Java program. My own thoughts are that I imagine it would be challenging dealing with the scale of probable answers especially as the size of the program increases. But I imagine at an implementation level it should be possible to input values into the program, record and mark any errors, analyse code, making comparisons with a database of possibilities. There is a lot to it for sure. Is it used? is it feasible?
