Getting started with Gradescope
Gradescope is an online grading tool that streamlines the tedious parts of grading paper-based, digital, and code assignments, while providing consistency in the grading process and insights into how students are doing.
Gradescope is now available as an integrated tool in UC Davis Canvas, and is available to all UC Davis instructors at no cost to them. The cost is covered by an institutionally paid site license.
For a quick overview of Gradescope, watch the following introductory video: What is Gradescope?
