Types of Assignments in GradeScope
GradeScope supports the following types of assignments. Click “More…” for step-by-step instructions about how to set-up, grade and return each type of assignment.
- Bubble Sheet (e.g. Scantron): For multiple-choice exams, students fill out a Gradescope Bubble Sheet (provided by the instructor), then GradeScope uses the instructor’s key to grade submissions. Completed bubble sheets can be scanned (for in-person assessments), or students can input their answers online (for remote assessments). Instructors can create multiple versions of exams. More…
- Exam / Quiz : Instructors create an assignment template where students write answers in designated regions (e.g. answer boxes). To grade, instructors scan the exam/quiz (for in-person assessments) or students upload pictures of their work (for remote assessments). More…
- Homework / Problem Set : Instructors specify a window of time when students can submit their work. Students upload images of their (typically hand-written) work via their phone or computer. More…
- Programming Assignment: Instructors can grade student code with autograders or manually grade each submission. More…
- Online Assignment (in beta; not recommended): Instructors use the Gradescope platform to create online assignments, then students submit responses online. This is similar to the Quiz activity in GauchoSpace/Canvas, but has less extensive features/capabilities. More…
