Abstract

For both engineering physics and life science physics sequences, machine‐graded problem sets derived from textbook problems drastically reduce the grading time while substantially increasing the student effort outside of class. With simple modifications, the problem sets can be reused each time a course is offered. Such problem set grading has some of the merits of computer‐assisted instruction, but is considerably lower in cost and applicable to large classes and students who have little time on campus.
