Gradescope at JMU


Gradescope helps you assess and grade your students’ work. Gradescope supports variable-length assignments (problem sets & projects) as well as fixed-template assignments (worksheets, quizzes, bubble sheets, and exams). Handwritten assignments can also be uploaded into Gradescope to be graded digitally. Multiple graders can work together to create and use grading rubrics. Gradescope has analytics that provide useful data on students’ progress, allowing you to identify areas that need improvement and use data to guide your teaching practices.
