Is there a way to test if two processing programs are functionally identical?
Background: I am teaching a course teaching Processing course and was looking for an automated way of scoring the student's projects. I am looking for a way to automatically compare the students submitted code to my correct solutions.
Is there a way to make a script that checks if the students program contains specified elements? Also, is there a way to simulate input and automatically check program output state.
Currently I am manually running each students submission (one at a time) and reviewing the source code to test/score their submissions. I would greatly appreciate any advice on how to improve and streamline my grading pipeline.
