Workshop: Delivering and Grading Assignments with Gradescope

Learn how instructors use Gradescope. The workshop will offer guidance on how to deliver and grade assessments remotely and in-person. We will outline various assessment options to meet your immediate needs, including:

  • Fully online assignments, no paper required
  • Existing paper-based assignments
  • Combining online and paper-based approaches

We will also cover the instructor workflow of using Gradescope integrated with Canvas.

Learn more about Gradescope from fellow instructors.

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Grade your existing exams and homework on Gradescope
  • Make rubric changes as you grade - changes apply to previously graded work to maintain consistency
  • Write each comment only once - apply previously used comments with a click
  • Create better rubrics to increase student learning
  • Use ‘assignment analytics’ to gain insight into student learning


This workshop is for Cornell instructors who have experience with Gradescope and are looking to enhance their knowledge of this tool.

*Instructors are welcome to invite their TAs and grading staff.
