One of the best methods of learning in programming courses depends on practical exercises. But preparing, collecting and grading homework manually takes time. When the number of students increases the number of homework given reduces.This reduces effectiveness of whole course. One way to solve this problem is distributing homework through an automatic grading system and getting back fast feedback.This paper describes such a system that grades programming homework automatically. This system is using test driven software development methods and technologies that are being used by those methods. This system is tested with 8 homework ina course with 36 students and the results are discussed in this paper.
