Coordinating Teams, Grading Efficiently

Gradescope, which integrates with Canvas, “allows us to have students submit their homeworks online and provides just the right features for AIs to grade homeworks with maximal efficiency and consistency.”

Ramon Van Handel, Associate Professor, PACM, ORFE
Course: Probability and Random Processes

Probability and Random Processes enrolls a high number of students and Professor Van Handel coordinates a team of instructors. Gradescope, which in Van Handel’s words “plugs into Canvas seamlessly,” allows students to upload homework online, then have AIs grade submissions by question or section, rather than having to meet and allocate whole papers to different graders.

Gradescope can also be prompted to use Artificial Intelligence to group correct and incorrect answers, and create and adjust rubrics as you grade, capabilities that can save time and promote consistency, even in small classes. Van Handel recommends that “for online homework submission and grading, the GradeScope plugin is a must.”
