Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In learning UML (Unified Modeling Language) state machine diagrams, it is difficult for learners to receive quick educational feedback on errors from educators because it takes time for educators to grade the answers.
In order to provide such feedback to learners, it is essential to identify errors accurately and automatically.
For this purpose, we have proposed a method to support educators in determining the correctness of state machine diagrams.
However, although the previous methods automatically determine the correctness of behavior, they cannot identify the location and type of error.
Therefore, the purpose of this study is to propose an automatic method for identifying errors in state machine diagrams and the types of errors.
In this paper, we discuss in particular the types of errors that should be identified.
As a result of applying the proposed method to 38 answers, the correct results were obtained for 97% of the answers. It is suggested that the proposed method is useful as an error identification method.
