We’ll grade the Test in Gradescope, where you’ll find rubrics applied to the questions you’ve been assigned.

Getting Started

Getting to Your Test Question

  • Click here to see the grading page for the “Test: Written Answers” assignment.
  • Find your question numbers (e.g., 2.1, 8.3) in Gradescope. Hover over your assigned question until you see “Submissions” fade in. Click “Submissions” to see the student submissions for that question.
  • Click on a random submission to begin grading. Do not always starting with submission #1!

Grading Procedures

  • For each question you are to grade, before you begin, look through the first 10–15 submissions so as to have a sense of what kinds of answers students are giving. If you have any questions about the rubric, please try to ask before you begin grading if possible. Only start grading after doing both of the above.
  • For each response, read each question and give a score by clicking one of the rubric options on the right.
    • Do not manually override, assign fractional points, or otherwise diverge from the rubric options without conferring with Carter, David, or Doug.
  • If you give less than full credit for any response, please include a brief comment in the “Provide comments specific to this submission” section of the page.
    • Keep any comments factual and/or encouraging. Avoid making any comments in jest.


  • You can re-use comments with the “Apply Previously Used Comments” menu to save time so that you don’t find yourself typing the same thing over and over!
  • You can type z in Gradescope to move on to the next ungraded submission.
