Abstract

Programming is a course that is considered quite difficult for most students. Students are required to have abilities in all processes. Computer programming skills require a lot of practice through lab work assignments. Managing and assessing results of a student’s lab work assignment is complex and quite time-consuming task. The availability of automatic programming assessment tools to receive the results of lab work assignments and automatically correct and assess can ease the task of a lecturer. Grouping students according to their level of performance, makes it easy for lecturers to monitor student performance levels and can provide learning according to students’ abilities. Grouping was done using K-Means clustering method. Data was score obtained from the lab work assignment of the Automatic Programming Assessment Tool. From the results of clustering, there were 3 groups of students based on their abilities, namely 16 people in the medium ability group, 11 people were students with high ability and 14 people were students whose programming abilities were still lacking.
