Semi-automatic assessment is a concept that attempts to unify the advantages of computer-aided assessment and tutorial feedback. In the sense of formative assessment, the student should be able to demand feedback not only on her final solution, but also during her entire solution process. The Jacareto capture and replay tool was used to record student interaction with a learning application, with the goal of making the learner's approach comprehensible to the tutor, thereby making elaborate feedback possible. This paper describes challenges that had to be overcome to realise a semi-automatic assessment scenario with Jacareto.
