During the academic year of 2023/2024, Clark University is running a 1 year pilot of Gradescope.

In Spring of 2024, we  will solicit and consider faculty and student feedback, and usage data, to determine if Gradescope will become a permanent part of our service inventory. If you have feedback on Gradescope that you’d like to share, please contact Joanne Dolan ( or the Help Desk (, 508-793-7745).

What is Gradescope?


Gradescope is a tool designed to streamline and standardize paper-based, digital, and code assignments.  With Gradescope you can:

  • Create on-the-fly grading rubrics for assignments and problem sets.
  • Easily adjust rubrics at any time and retroactively apply changes.
  • Grade assignments anonymously.
  • Standardize grades across instructors and teaching assistants.
  • Get detailed analytics on an individual and class-wide level.
  • Grade handwritten assignments, such as problem sets, online.
  • Sync assignment grading with Canvas.
