Abstract: Designing an automated assessment tool in online distributed programming can provide students with a meaningful distributed learning environment that improves their academic performance. However, it is a complex and challenging endeavor that, as far as we know, has not been investigated yet. To address this research gap, this work presents a new automated assessment tool in online distributed programming, called DSLab. The tool was evaluated in a real long-term online educational experience by analyzing students' perceptions with the aim of improving its design. A quantitative analysis method was employed to collect and analyze data concerning students perceptions as to whether using the DSLab tool was really a worthwhile experience. Our study shows that the DSLab tool includes acceptable utility and efficiency features. It also identifies factors that influence current design efficiency with the aim of improving DSLab design by suggesting new functionalities and ideas.
