Grading a simple question
This video shows the basics of grading with Gradescope. You'll see how to:
- Navigate through submissions for one question.
- Make rubric items.
- Change rubric point values.
Grading even faster with keyboard shortcuts
In our shortest video, you'll learn how to use keyboard shortcuts to grade even more quickly. We also have a handy image for reference.
Advanced grading options
This video goes over how to change rubric settings, make student-specific point adjustments and comments, grade in parallel with multiple graders, and create groups of rubric items.
Annotation and advanced navigation
Gradescope allows free-hand annotation of student submissions. With Gradescope Complete, you can also type text directly on the submission. And even though by default you see only the question area, it's simple to see the rest of the page, as well as other pages.
For fixed-template assignments, we have two features that can help speed up grading even more:
- Answer Groups (for all question types): the ability to form and grade answer groups, instead of individual student answers.
- AI Assistance (for some question types): Gradescope's AI automatically forms suggested answer groups for your review.
Answer Groups and AI Assistance are available with institutional site licenses and for individual courses subscribed to Gradescope Complete. If you'd like to try out these features for free, please send us an email.

Instructors can also check code similarity reports to flag potential plagiarism cases.
Access to programming assignments is available with institutional site licenses and for individual courses subscribed to Gradescope Complete. For more on building code autograders, check out our Gradescope Autograder documentation.
Create a bubble sheet assignment
With bubble sheet assignments, you can define the correct answers using an answer key, for up to five versions. Gradescope can then grade the students’ multiple choice responses automatically. You can download our bubble sheet template file here.

Newer model here.
Upload scans and associate them with students
After the exams are scanned in, they can be uploaded in batches. We'll attempt to automatically split the scanned pages into submissions. We will then automatically attempt to match each submission to a student in your roster, and you'll be able to manually match any remaining submissions. You can download the two batches used in this video: first and second.
After grading is complete, all data can be downloaded from Gradescope in CSV format. Conveniently, students can be notified of the availability of their graded assignment via Gradescope via email and can review their scores online. If you'd like to disable regrade requests for an assignment, you can do so from the Regrade Requests page.
Manage regrade requests
Once grades have been released, students have the option to submit regrade requests. Gradescope allows instructors to easily change students' grades and submit responses to the requests.
View assignment statistics
Once grading is complete for an assignment, you can go to the Assignment Statistics page to get further insights into what your students have learned and where they are potentially struggling. You can view statistics at the assignment level or at the question/rubric item level, and you can also tag questions with concepts, learning objectives, book chapters, etc., and then view statistics by tag.
