Techniques for manual and automated grading of programming labs are discussed. Topics investigated include: general grading of programming labs, plagiarism detection, pro gram documentation, program output, and program efficiency. This investigation led to the development of automated grading tools that report on style and point to possible instances of plagiarism. The techniques utilized will be discussed and their use demonstrated.
