Gradescope for Fast, Consistent Grading — Idea-Sharing Session

Gradescope is an online program for consistent grading through the use of rubrics for point assignment and standard responses for common errors. You can grade assignments, quizzes, and exams faster and more uniformly. Gradescope is especially useful for materials that are handwritten and for larger classes.

Many faculty are already using Gradescope, and there will be two idea-sharing sessions at lunch time on Wednesday, Nov. 11, and Thursday, Nov. 12.
