What is Gradescope?

Gradescope is a versatile grading tool that can efficiently handle a variety of assignments, including quizzes, exams, and homework that involve handwritten work such as equations, diagrams, or even musical notation. Gradescope uses flexible and robust rubrics and can be used for any modality and assignment type: student-submitted homework, in-person exams, or an alternative to scantron. Through the use of rubrics in Gradescope, instructors and teaching teams report greater consistency in grading.

Gradescope is integrated with Canvas and supports full pass-back of grades to the Canvas Gradebook.

What is Gradescope good for?

  • Transparent and consistent grading: All graders use the same rubric, resulting in increased consistency for each problem. Students know exactly where they earn or lost points with applied rubric items.
  • Seamless grading for the teaching team: Multiple instructors, TAs, or readers simultaneously with no overlap. Divide grading labor in your teaching team easily and equitably.
  • In-depth analytics: provided for the overall assignment and each problem.
