The increased number of diagram based questions in higher education has
recently attracted researchers to look into marking diagrams automatically.
Student diagrammatic solutions are naturally very dissimilar to each others.
However, it has been observed that there are a number of identical diagram
components. This observation forms the basis of our semi–automatic
assessment. Identifying identical diagram components in student diagrams
needs contextual information about each component. This paper proposes a
diagram tool which obtains the contextual information of each component in a
conceptual database diagram.
