Gradescope is an online grading application that enables instructors to assess handwritten work as well as several kinds of online assignments in a fast, flexible, and scalable way.
Gradescope's most notable advantages include:
- Speed: most users report that their grading is sped up by a third, versus manual grading of paper-based submissions.
- Consistency: most users report they are able to grade more fairly while helping students learn from mistakes and providing transparency in grading.
- Flexibility: users can modify rubrics as they encounter new mistakes, or revise earlier evaluations.
Gradescope Site (Growth) License
In summer 2020, CSE, Chemistry, Math, and Applied Math, began collectively funding an agreement (based on respective unit usage) with Gradescope that provides default use of all advanced features, usually only available at the Enterprise level, including Canvas integration. As of Winter 2021, Chemical Engineering and ECE have also joined in the collective use and funding of this application.
**The current Gradescope Growth License terms also allow for additional campus units to try out the full scope of services offered by Gradescope. CSE, as the primary project sponsor, would be happy to discuss this further with any other departments who may wish to evaluate the platform for use in their own courses.**
