Abstract

We present a case study in evaluating a formal methods technique, using student assessed exercise solutions as sample input to SymmExtractor, a symmetry detection tool for the SPIN model checker. We discuss the ethical procedure which must be followed when using student programs for research, and present the results of our evaluation.
