To create a new assignment in WordPress, click into one of your courses, and then click Add assignment. Choose WordPress from the drop-down list of available full-stack 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 WordPress 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 assignment, you can add these as test classes in the tests/ directory.

All unit test class filenames must end with Test.php and the test classes with filenames that end with HiddenTest.php 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.php, etc.

PHP version 7.4 must be used and all dependencies that your assignment requires need to be added to the composer.json file.

All unit tests must use be located in the tests/ directory and use the PHPUnit(version 8.1.2) testing framework.

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 WordPress 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.

Code validation

We also validate each student's solution against the WordPress Coding Standards, and flag any issues we find in the static analysis issues section of our report screen.
