IT Implements a New Grading Tool for Faculty

In early September, The Division of Information Technology implemented a new grading tool for faculty called Gradescope. Gradescope helps faculty keep track of assignments and allows for an easier, more efficient way to grade digitally.  

Useful Features 

  • Gradescope offers a scanning feature that allows you to scan your students’ work . 

  • Build rubrics inside of the program for an easier, more consistent grading technique. 

  • Send grades right to the students or export them into Blackboard Learn. 

  • Gradescope includes analytics of your tests and assignments to get a quick understanding of what topics your students are doing well in or struggling with.  

  • Students can submit their work within Gradescope, including PDFs, photos, and even code.  

  • For faculty who prefer Scantron for testing, Gradescope also offers digital bubble sheets. 

If you are unsure about how to use any of these features, Gradescope offers detailed tutorials and tips on how to use the platform. 

To learn more about Gradescope, visit our Using Gradescope article or check out Gradescope’s website for more details.
