Gradescope: Full-Service Instructor Guide

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. 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 can be used to deliver assessments online or as part of a face-to-face instruction. Gradescope also helps with grading paper-based work, programming assignments at scale and can also automatically grade printed bubble sheets. Mines has a campus-wide license and Gradescope is available to all faculty and students.
