About Gradescope at IU

On this page:


Gradescope is a platform for assignment and exam submission, grading, and analytics. It integrates with Canvas to facilitate the grading of bubble sheets, hand-written assignments and problems, and coding assignments. Instructors can design and print bubble sheets and scan them using a standard scanner. Flexible rubrics and artificial intelligence assist with the organization and consistent grading of handwritten answers.

Gradescope aids instructors in doing in-depth, rubric-based grading and marking of students' papers. The source papers may be hand-written or electronic (for example, PDF or Word files) or even Scantron forms. Rubrics may be prepared in advance, or may be created and modified dynamically during grading. Grading and marking can be done via selections from menus generated from the rubrics. PDF files of the graded and annotated papers are returned to the students. While the target audience is instructors in quantitative and/or coding courses, the software can be used to advantage in non-quantitative courses as well, for example, in grading and marking essays.
