Due to mass lectures and reduced personal resources, e-assessment gains importance. Typical e-assessment systems focus on multiple choice, inserting short text, and other simple forms of examination. They are not suited for examining creative tasks. In particular, there are very few systems for assessing mathematical calculations or proofs, and the few existing ones have very limited functionality. We have developed the e-assessment system EASy which focuses on mathematical proofs. Moreover, we have evaluated this system in a lecture on data structures and algorithms with more than 200 students.
