What Is Gradescope? and How Can I Use it to Make Grading More Efficient (and Give Students Better Feedback)?
This session will introduce Gradescope, a tool currently being used as part of a pilot at Penn, which is designed to streamline the process of grading assignments. Instructors can have students upload pen-and-paper problem sets, handwritten essay exams, typed exams, bubble sheets, PDFs or other types of assignments. It has an interface that automatically differentiates between questions and supports rubrics for each question (and even allows the rubrics to be created on the fly.) As a result, instructors can create more consistent grading across students and sections and give students consistent feedback (and more of it) with less work.
