The use case diagram is one of the diagrams commonly taught in colleges of computer science. Assessment of use case diagrams is often an obstacle for a teacher in the learning process. It is due to the interpersonal intrapersonal problems of the teacher in assessing. Interpersonal problems are caused by the absence of an assessment standard among teachers. Intrapersonal problems are caused by the inconsistency of a teacher in assessing many diagrams of student answers. This research aims to create a semantic use case diagram automatic assessment method. Semantic assessment is divided into two kinds, namely property and relationship. All information used is a label translated from the XMI document. Similarity assessment between labels used cosine similarity, employing WuPalmer to perform WordNet searches. The results showed that the proposed method had a substantial agreement with the teacher as an expert; however, a teacher tends to look at property information rather than relationship information to assess use case diagrams.
