Gradescope UIUC is a software tool used by instructors in the life sciences, physical sciences, and engineering to grade student handwritten assignments online. Other campus systems cover other disciplinary categories, and the software has a learning curve. Instructors should check the FAQs before starting to use it. In addition to online grading, instructors can also grade handwritten assignments.
Creating a Course in Gradescope UIUC
After logging into Gradescope, you will need to set up a new course. Choose a name and term for your course. Select the role of Instructor or Guest Instructor to begin. If you’re an instructor, you’ll need to add assignments to your course. TAs and Teaching Fellows can also create and grade assignments.
Once you’ve created your course in Gradescope, you can link it to a Blackboard course. When students click on the link, they should be dropped into the correct Gradescope course. If you’re using different Blackboard sites, you’ll need to make sure that the link points to the correct course. Otherwise, users won’t be able to find your course.
Gradescope is an online grading system that allows instructors to create rubric-based assignments and grade them. It supports a variety of assignments, including worksheets, problem sets, exams, and papers. The program streamlines the grading process and enables instructors to get additional insights into students’ learning. It supports several disciplinary categories, including mathematics, physical science, engineering, and life sciences.
Once you’ve set up the course in Gradescope, you’re ready to add your students’ grades. You can even add a descriptive rubric or comment on each student’s answer. The Gradescope AI will then automatically group similar answers and assign a point value and feedback. Afterwards, your grade will be published, and students will be notified via email.
Using Gradescope with Canvas
Using Gradescope with Canvas allows you to easily grade your students’ work online. Gradescope also supports grading and feedback for both digital and paper-based assessments, which is especially useful in disciplines and STEM courses. Gradescope also supports syncing student rosters with Canvas. When linking Gradescope assignments with Canvas, you must publish the assignment first, otherwise it will not post grades.
To add Gradescope to a Canvas course, first add it to the course’s settings page. Click on the course’s name, which will pre-populate with the course name and number. Select the North American term time (or the one you are currently using – an Australian version is in development). You will then be asked to enter a first and last name to link the course.
Gradescope is a cloud-based grading tool that integrates with Canvas and enables instructors to grade assignments faster and more consistently. It’s especially useful for grading handwritten problem sets and short answer work. The software also offers AI-assisted grading through templates. It also allows you to grade papers with equations. In addition, you can upload handwritten assignments directly from Gradescope and share feedback with students.
Using Gradescope with Canvas is easy! First, authorize Gradescope to access the course’s information. Once this is done, select the Canvas course in the Gradescope Roster and click the Link Course button. After that, click the Update Course and Sync Roster to sync the two systems.
