This project will focus on two main objectives. The first objective is to analyze Java programming solutions submitted by students and cluster or group them based on their similarities. This will help instructors in finding repeated and unique solutions. The second objective is to analyze the assignment submission pattern of students. The metrics such as the number of times a student submits an assignment online before deadline and the amount of time a student spends on an assignment are analyzed. This information could be useful to instructors in determining the complexity of assignments and student time management.
