Output Tests

This is an example of how you can test the output stream of student code.

This test makes sure the student's code prints "Hello World". It assumes the student's file name is example.py. Replace the import with whatever you student's file name is.

Note: This code converts the output to all lowercase and removes spaces to compare against the correct value.

Grading Tests:

import unittest
import sys, io

stdout = sys.stdout

class CodingRoomsUnitTests(unittest.TestCase):

    def setUp(self):
        global stdout
        stdout = sys.stdout
        sys.stdout = io.StringIO()

    def tearDown(self):
        global stdout
        sys.stdout = stdout
    def test_default_case(self):
        import example
        output = sys.stdout.getvalue().strip("\n")

        answer = "Hello World".casefold().replace(" ", "")
        student = output.casefold().replace(" ", "")
        self.assertEqual(answer, student)

if __name__ == '__main__':

Sample Solution:

print("Hello World")
