To create a new assignment in Scala, click into one of your courses, and then click Add assignment. Choose Scala from the drop-down list of available backend languages and set the the rest of your assignment's parameters (deadline, etc.). Once the assignment is created, a new folder will be created in the private GitHub/GitLab template repository for the course in which you are added this assignment. This folder will contain a standard sbt project structure:

Automated test-suite setup

If you would like to add tests that are automatically run by AssignmentOS against each student's solution to your assessment, you can add these as test classes in the src/test/ directory.

All unit tests files must end with Test.scala and all unit tests files that end with HiddenTest.scala will not be visible to the student.

If you want to add files that your hidden unit tests use and hence are also not visible to the student, the names of these files must begin with hidden (case-insensitive), e.g., hiddenFoo.json, hiddenFoo.csv, HiddenFoo.scala, etc.

All unit tests must use the JUnit test framework.

The name of the project in the build.sbt should be updated to better match your assessment, and any dependencies required for your coding assessment must be added to the build.sbt file.

The Scala version that must be used is 2.13.6.

GitHub Action & GitLab CI/CD

AssignmentOS uses either GitHub Actions or GitLab CI/CD (depending on whether you use with GitHub or GitLab) to run automated unit tests. We provide the following GitHub Action & GitLab CI/CD file for Scala assignments. Note that this file is added dynamically to the repo of each student taking your assignment, so please do not include it in your template repo. This file also cannot be changed.
