This paper was a product of an undergraduate independent study. We overhauled our university’s systems administration lab and grading system, enabling lab assistants and professors to grade assignments quickly after students had left their workstations. This was accomplished through manipulation of VirtualPC drive files and configuration, orchestrated by a customized management system written in Python.
