Gradescope is an online grading system that is available to all U-M instructors and students free of charge. It allows students to submit paper-based assignments via an upload process and allows instructors and staff to scan and upload paper-based submissions. Instructors can grade and annotate student submissions online and export scores for manual import to the Canvas gradebook.
The university has a data protection agreement with Gradescope that provides for the protection of student data and privacy in Gradescope. This agreement means that Gradescope can be used for the maintenance and sharing of student data regulated by FERPA.
