Gradescope FAQ

What is Gradescope?

Gradescope is a tool designed to streamline the grading and feedback process for paper-based, digital, and code assignments. It works particularly well with handwritten complex notation, but can also facilitate multiple choice assessments. In Gradescope, students can upload handwritten paper problem sets that are then graded by the instructor in an online interface.

Why use Gradescope?

Using Gradescope helps instructors grade complex problem sets faster, more consistently, and with detailed feedback. As instructors give feedback and dynamically create their rubric, any changes will retroactively update previously graded submissions. Gradescope also supplies detailed analytics to help identify where your students might be struggling with content. Rosters and grades also can sync with Moodle, making management of student information easier.
