Abstract


In this contribution a web-based assessment framework for CAD data is proposed which has been developed based on the experience the authors made giving undergraduate courses at a German university. The framework is the backbone of a hybrid teaching concept combining conventional classroom lessons with e-learning elements. In-between the classroom lessons the students receive instructions on a particular modeling task via a web-interface. The same interface is used to hand in solutions in form of CAD files. Teachers who need to assess these solutions are supported by a semi-automated analysis of the CAD geometry. An algorithm compares each solution with a reference solution in order to reveal typical modeling mistakes. After the assessment is completed the students receive a feedback on their work. A case study on the application of the teaching concept in a course with 691 participants held during summer term 2013 reveals the positive experience the authors made using the system and points to some issues that need to be improved in the future.
