In recent years a small number of web-based tools have been proposed to help students learn to write SQL query statements and also to assess students' SQL writing skills. SQLify is a new SQL teaching and assessment tool that extends the current state-of-the-art by incorporating peer review and enhanced automatic assessment based on database theory to produce more comprehensive feedback to students. SQLify (pronounced as squalify) is intended to yield a richer learning experience for students and reduce marking load for instructors. In this paper SQLify is compared with existing tools and important new features are demonstrated.
