About this Episode

Today, we'll talk about how to test students' code using automated tools. For example, the unit testing built into Replit's Teams for Education allows students to see if their code is correct, while teachers can quickly assess dozens of submissions. We'll also talk about potential pitfalls that can disrupt or distract from learning.

Note: This is a shorter episode format that focuses on one specific topic, limited to 15-20 minutes.
