Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) allow the participation of hundreds of students who are interested in a wide range of areas. Given the huge numbers enrolled, it is almost impossible to give complex homework to students and have it carefully corrected and reviewed by a tutor or assistant professor. In this paper, we present a software framework that aims at assisting teachers in MOOCs during correction tasks for mathematics exercises. This framework might suit maths, physics or technical subjects. As a test experience, we apply it to 300+ physics homework bulletins from 80+ students. Test results show our solution can prove very useful in guiding assistant teachers during correction shifts.
