The closest things I can find in the AppIndex are Spotter
<http://www.lightandmatter.com/spotter/spotter.html>, which just checks
answers for correctness, and LON-CAPA <http://www.lon-capa.org/>, which
I think would allow you to enter such procedures in a lesson but which
doesn't actually do the work itself.  If I can find anything else I'll
let you know.
