What is Gradescope?

Gradescope is a tool offered by Turnitin that provides a new way of submitting and marking assessment. As Gradescope is new, it is extremely important that you follow the best practice advice in these guides.

Gradescope enables electronic creation, delivery, submission and marking of a number of assessment types:

  • handwritten responses
  • typed responses
  • STEM formulae and diagrams
  • programming/code
  • multiple choice

It is particularly useful for paper-based assignments which require students to supply answers that cannot be directly entered into a computer or device.
