I wanted to clone all of my student repos for a given course project so I’d have them all locally. I built a simple Python script and it seems to do the job.
Great. I’ll try this out soon!
Using the web interface to check student submissions seems slow, especially when you have many students.
I assume after you made local copies you then give feedback by changing the student repos on your machine. What works best with your system? @danwallach
Our campus uses Canvas, so I set up a rubric there and my graders give feedback through Canvas. My graders mostly just look at the Travis-CI output linked from GitHub. I need local copies for things like running MOSS to detect plagiarism.
Thank you for this explanation. What is Canvas? Is it this? https://canvanizer.com/
I don’t see how we can use the systems from our university for feedback on my PHP assignments, so I am currently looking for a better way…
Canvas is a commercial product from Instructure (https://www.instructure.com/). Our university has a site-license for it.
