Matching User Interfaces to Assess Simple Web Applications (Short Paper)

OASIcs-ICPEC-2021-7.pdf (0.5 MB)


This paper presents ongoing research aiming at the automatic assessment of simple web applications, like those used in introductory web technologies courses. The distinctive feature of the proposed approach is a web interface matching procedure. This matching procedure verifies if the web interface being assessed corresponds to that of a reference application; otherwise, provides detailed feedback on the detected differences. Since web interfaces are event-driven, this matching is instrumental to assess the functionality. After mapping web interface elements from two applications, these can be targeted with events and property changes can be compared. This paper details the proposed matching algorithm and the current state of its implementation. It also discusses future work to embed this approach in a web environment for solving web application exercises with automatic assessment.
