Gradescope Training & Resources

Upcoming Workshops

These one-hour workshops will focus on how you can use Gradescope to deliver and grade your assignments whether they are paper-based, fully online, or a combination of the two.

In these workshops, you will learn how to:

  • Set up assignments where students can submit freeform work (no printers or templates needed)
  • Grade your existing exams and homework in Gradescope
  • Make rubric changes as you grade – changes apply to previously graded work to maintain consistency
  • Write each comment only once – apply previously used comments with a click
  • Use ‘assignment analytics’ to gain insight into student learning

Gradescope will send you a recording of the workshop even if you do not join the session!
