It could motivate some students to get a place in a certain Hall of fame. This needs some further thought and discussion, but some ideas are:

  • rank the first, second and third one to submit a solution correctly
  • rank the first, second and third fastest solutions
  • list all students for who a first submission passes all specification tests
  • display the students own rank as well (related to all students participating in the course)

Some conditions

  • this should be turned off by default for assignments
  • students should be able to opt out of being included with their name in the ranking
  • it works best if this is automatically updated upon a successful submission by a student (not wait until graded)

Note that this hall of fame may be different from the grade for an exercise. A grade may include other things like points for nice coding (comments, etc.), answers to questions in a report, etc.
