Introducing a new programming problem assessment type and a new Sphere Engine IDE example scenario

Dec. 1, 2019, noon by Wojtek Cichon

We have introduced a new "Assessment type" in the advanced settings of Programming Problems. The new "Percentage" type enables having the absolute score range from 0% to 100%. Please note that the "Assessment type" setting works only when using the Sphere Engine Problems Widget, especially in the case of utilizing Sphere Engine for Education with the client-side integration between Sphere Engine and LMS.

Last, but not least - there is a new example scenario on Sphere Engine IDE: Gradle + Kotlin. At the same time, we are working hard on turning the beta version of Sphere Engine IDE into our first release candidate. Keep your fingers crossed and follow our changelog for more updates.

At Sphere Engine we combine years of experience in recruiting developers and assessing coding skills with the latest technologies. Our APIs and software components enable creating programming challenges, online compilers, IDEs, and teaching coding to millions of end-users across the globe. We work with companies like Infosys, Amazon, Edhesive, support thousands of educational institutions around the world, and run our own community-focused platforms - Spoj and ideone.
