Teachers can...

  • Create and monitor practice teams.
  • Assign time-limited sets of ex-competition tasks.
  • Retrieve teams' submissions for class discussion or validation.

Teams can...

  • Attempt graded tasks.
  • Submit code and test results for automated assessment.
  • Receive feedback and cumulative scores.
  • Ask for hints to help them start or progress their solutions.

All submissions for ProgComp 2020 have been assessed, see the llnk on the right. We've decided that there was no need for divisions as the comp was generally run under the usual supervised conditions.

As there is no Grand Final this year, the order or merit is determined by the Main Round results. Congratulations to Sydney Grammar's team Horrible Evil Code, whose code was (mostly) neither horrible nor evil, and who achieved 92% of the available points and are this year's champions. High Distinctions were awarded to the top 8 teams, based on open tasks results only. All other rankings are based on all attempted tasks.
