Report TitleACE Organic: a Web-based organic chemistry homework program

Abstract:We have developed a Web-based homework program designed especially for organic chemistry. Students submit responses that consist of structures that they drew with the help of a structure-drawing program embedded in the Web page. If a response is incorrect, the program analyzes the response to give the most appropriate feedback without revealing the correct answer. The program can analyze multistep mechanisms and syntheses of any length.
