Gradescope: Staff Guides

Gradescope is a tool offered by Turnitin that provides a way of submitting and marking assessment. As Gradescope is new, it is extremely important that you follow the best practice advice in these guides.

It is particularly useful for paper-based assignments which require students to supply answers that cannot be directly entered into a computer or device.

Gradescope enables electronic creation, delivery, submission and marking of a number of assessment types:

  • handwritten responses
  • typed responses
  • STEM formulae and diagrams
  • programming/code
  • multiple choice
This guide explains how to set up and link a Gradescope course to your Minerva module.

External Examiner Access

Quality Assurance have advised that all external examiners must have a Leeds IT account created before they can be given access to submissions and any other University systems (e.g. Minerva).

See, Leeds IT account for external examiners for more information.
