Gradescope – Online Assignment Grading


Gradescope is a tool that supports the process of grading assignments and exams, whether paper-based, digital, or code. Instructors can see detailed assignment and question analytics in real time, and students receive faster and more detailed feedback on their work. Gradescope also works with U-M Canvas, so instructors can grade and annotate student submissions online, and export scores for manual import to their Canvas grade book.
