What is Gradescope?

Gradescope is a feedback and assessment tool that dramatically reduces the pain and time associated with grading exams, homework, and other assignments. Gradescope is widely used for delivering assessments remotely. It enables instructors and graders to give better and more timely feedback, resulting in improved learning outcomes. Dynamic rubrics help streamline the tedious parts of grading while increasing grading consistency. AI-assisted Grading allows instructors to automatically group similar answers and grade all the answers in each group at once. Gradescope also helps with grading programming assignments at scale and can automatically grade printed bubble sheets. 

A few highlights include:

  • More quality and timely feedback, resulting in improved learning outcomes
  • Dynamic rubrics that help streamline the tedious parts of grading while increasing grading consistency and decreasing bias
  • Various assignment types ranging from fully online with many question types to handwritten, or a combination of the two
  • AI-assisted grading which allows instructors to automatically group similar answers and grade all the answers in each group at once
