An inherent problem of higher education in Greece regards the absence of regular homework assignments due, at large, to limited teaching resources. Work is currently in progress for overcoming the aforementioned problem by the development, followed by implementation, of a customized software tool namely platform for adaptive and reliable evaluation of students or PARES for short. The basic idea behind PARES is to regularly give students short exams, including multiple-choice questions, in response to homework assignments. This work presents technical features as well as our first experience of using PARES at a large-scale in practice. A statistical evaluation of PARES is also described.
