Assessing student submissions and providing accurate and timely feedback in educational courses that involve writing code has shown to be demanding. Thus, we recently designed an automated test system that builds submitted code, runs it on the actual target hardware, and generates a report that may include the results of various measurement devices. After a successful test run in the Real-Time Operating Systems course, we aim to adopt our ATTEST test system in further courses spanning the whole system stack. A unified testing solution benefits students by lowering extraneous cognitive load and supervisors by reducing maintenance effort. This work-in-progress paper states why test cases remain an essential assessment technique, summarizes approaches to virtualize laboratory courses, and elaborates on the coursespecific testing requirements and expected outcomes.
