Welcome to the home page for the Curator Project. Curator is a Java client-server application for managing the submission of student assignments across the Web.
The Curator System is a third-generation automated grading system for introductory programming classes. The Curator System has been freely available to academic institutions since Spring 2000.
Curator may be used to collect and archive student submissions for later processing by humans. Curator also may be used to automatically score submitted programming assignments. The submission process includes validation of user id and password, and students are automatically notified by e-mail that their assignments have been archived. If automated scoring is employed, e-mail notification includes testing and scoring data.
A new version, incorporating substantial improvements, is under development and was deployed in August 2003.
For a broad overview of the functionality and requirements see the Curator Introduction or the SIGCSE 2004 poster (ppt pdf).
For license terms, see the Curator License Agreement.
Full details and the system source are available at the Curator distribution site. (Password required.)
Users should read the Curator Administrator Manual available there.
(A password is required for the manuals and the Curator System distribution package. Send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for the necessary information. This may take some time since we're currently understaffed, but we will get back to you.)
