On Friday, March 31st, Dr. Dale Cope presented a Gradescope workshop to Engineering Education faculty members. The workshop was designed to teach faculty how to use Gradescope to deliver and grade all of their assignments, whether online or in person.
Gradescope is a powerful tool that helps students understand how to arrive at the correct solution even if they got the wrong answer. During the workshop, Dr. Cope demonstrated how faculty can add solution steps, set up assignments, and create tasks on Gradescope.
Gradescope is a web-based platform that allows instructors to grade assignments and exams digitally, improving efficiency and consistency in grading. As Dr. Cope pointed out, the tool can help cut down on time spent grading and provide a clearer picture of how students are performing in their courses. Faculty members left the workshop with a better understanding of how to utilize Gradescope in their courses.
Overall, the Gradescope workshop was a great success, and faculty members were appreciative of the opportunity to learn from Cope. By utilizing Gradescope, faculty members can ensure that grading is consistent and efficient, ultimately leading to better outcomes for students.
