UConn has recently finalized a licensing agreement with Gradescope, and Gradescope is now integrated with HuskyCT. Gradescope is a feedback and assessment tool that reduces some of the difficulties and time associated with grading exams, homework, and other assignments. It is widely used for delivering assessments remotely and enables instructors and graders to provide better and more timely feedback, resulting in improved learning outcomes.
Assignment Type Flexibility: Deliver, collect, and grade almost any type of assignment - whether on paper or digital. Gradescope also supports Bubble Sheets (answer sheet exams) and Code/Programming assignments
Rubric Flexibility: Create rubrics on the fly, import from previous assignments, and share with other faculty. Gradescope rubrics are dynamic, meaning they can be changed at any point in the grading process and automatically updated for all submissions previously graded. They can also include LaTeX, markdown, and images to help deliver feedback in the right format to students
Grading Workflows: Easily grade by yourself or divide the grading among multiple graders. Rubrics are associated with each question (rather than the entire submission) and remain consistent for all students, regardless of who grades their work. This helps ensure fairness, reduce bias, and improve equity with grading.
Answer Grouping (for paper-based assessments): Group similar answers and grade them once, instead of grading each individually. This can allow you to grade hundreds of students with a few clicks, even for free response questions.
Student Feedback and Analytics: Students can see exactly what mistakes they made and why they missed points, as well as request regrades for individual questions directly via Gradescope. Instructors can analyze assignment- and question-level data, as well as customize data via tags to better understand key concepts and learning objectives.
