Gradescope now available to all JMU Faculty

JMU adopts Gradescope

By: Paige Normand, CS Advisor & Outreach Coordinator

The departments of CIS in the College of Business and CS in the College of Integrated Science have received a Center for Inclusive Computing Grant that is paying for all university faculty to be able to use advanced features of Gradescope through at least March of 2023.

Gradescope allows you to be more efficient and consistent in grading, reuse feedback for multiple submissions, enables automated grading, and allows modification of rubrics as you are grading. You can also scan in your paper assignments or have students submit pdfs and use advanced grading features.

See below to register for August workshops or just use your JMU credentials (SSO) to login and try it out:
