Gradescope for New and Advanced Instructors

August 30, 2018, 1:00pm
Have you heard about Gradescope and want to learn about how you can use it in your class? Have you used Gradescope in the past and want to hear about new functionality like bubble sheets? Want to get started but not sure where to scan your assignments? Join us for an intro to Gradescope at 1:00pm, followed by Gradescope office hours from 1:30-3:00pm where you can bring your questions to the developers and ETS service team. Gradescope is a suite of tools designed to accommodate a common grading workflow: Students or instructors scan and upload their assignments. Instructors and GSIs create a living rubric that allows for speedy grading of large courses. The Gradescope software can reveal valuable statistics about students work, and provide a path for students to request re-grades of questions.
