Description Large scale learning systems for introductory programming need to be able to automatically assess the quality of students' performance on programming tasks. This assessment is done using a performance measure, which provides feedback to students and teachers, and an input to the domain, student and tutor models. The choice of a good performance measure is nontrivial, since the performance of students can be measured in many ways, and the design of measure can interact with the adaptive features of a learning system or imperfections in the used domain model. We discuss the important design decisions and illustrate the process of an iterative design and evaluation of a performance measure in a case study.
