Thomas, Pete; Waugh, Kevin and Smith, Neil (2005). Experiments in the automatic marking of ER-Diagrams. In: 10th Annual Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education, 27-29 Jun 2005, Monte de Caparica, Portugal.


In this paper we present an approach to the computer understanding of diagrams and show how it can be successfully applied to the automatic marking (grading) of student attempts at drawing entity-relationship (ER) diagrams. The automatic marker has been incorporated into a revision tool to enable students to practice diagramming and obtain feedback on their attempts.
