docASSIST is a tool created by WPI students as MQP (Major Qualifying Project) and IQP (Interdisciplinary Qualifying Project) projects with advisement and mentorship from the WPI assistments team. The purpose of docASSIST is to help teachers give feedback to students faster and more efficiently. Currently many teachers are overworked and take a long time to give feedback to students. docASSIST solves this problem by giving teachers tools to quickly evaluate assignments using rubrics and user defined feedback options for rubric categories. The purpose of this IQP was to continue developing docASSIST. Areas of development included the development workflow of the docASSIST project, the rubric manager, and streamlining many common processes to maintain and continue development.
