Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Proceeding (Non-Journal item)


Generation of performance tests for programming challenge tasks is considered. A number of evolutionary approaches are compared on two different solutions of an example problem. It is shown that using helper-objectives enhances evolutionary algorithms in the considered case. The general approach involves automated selection of such objectives.
