Number of correct plus number of unsuccessful runs of algorithms
Absolute number (correct and unsuccessful) of an algorithm runs a student applied on any algorithm involved algorithm regardless of the origin of the algorithm (provided by the student himself or others).
Importance of the indicator for the students’ learning methodology:
The number of runs is an indicator of the experience gathered by a student on a given optimization problem and solver. It seems well correlated (I do not have a reference to this) to the ability of optimization applications in real-world problems.
