Gradescope Workshops (Vendor Sponsored):

Join us to learn how you can leverage Gradescope in your remote (and in-person) courses. One workshop is geared towards anyone new to Gradescope and one is intended for anyone already using Gradescope. You can sign up for one or both and even if you can’t attend, please register because you will be sent a recording of the workshop afterward. Faculty, TAs, and graders are welcome to attend.

This Gradescope workshop is targeted towards instructors and TAs who are already using Gradescope in their course(s) or want to learn more about how to leverage all the benefits of Gradescope. You’ll learn about our newest features and be able to ask questions and share feedback about your Gradescope experience.          

In this workshop you will: Learn about some lesser-known tips and tricks for saving even more time with grading on Gradescope

  • See a demo of some of our beta features, such as online assignments and assignment versioning
  • Take a look at newer Gradescope features like rubric item groups.
  • Have an opportunity to ask questions and share feedback and feature requests.

In the Gradescope for Beginners Workshop, we will introduce you to Gradescope by showing you the instructor workflow for creating assignments. You will also see the student interface for submitting assignments and viewing feedback. 

In this workshop 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 on 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
