Gradescope Mobile App

Updated

Gradescope Mobile App

The Gradescope mobile app allows students to submit to their assignments, and view their grades using their mobile device.

The mobile app is currently only available for users within the United States. We are currently working on making the app available globally. 

Getting Started

The Gradescope mobile app is available for both iOS and Android. Access the appropriate app store for your mobile device and search for Gradescope. Select Install

  • If the app does not appear, it may be because it is not yet available for your geographical location. 
  • If the app does not successfully download, please ensure that you have the memory space available and have updated your device to its latest software version. 
Logging in

Once you have downloaded the app, there are three sign-in methods to choose from.

  • Using school credentials? Select the School Credentials option and enter the details that you use for school. 
  • Using an email address? Select the Sign in with email option and enter the email address and password you have assigned to your Gradescope account. 
  • Don’t have an existing Gradescope account? Select the Sign Up option and add your details to the form provided. The next time you log in, you will use the Sign in with email option. 

Do you use Gradescope via a separate platform with your school, instead of directly through the Gradescope website? You will need to set a password for Gradescope before you will be able to log into the app. Access the login page on the Gradescope website and select Forgot password?. Enter the email address you use for your school’s platform, and follow the steps to reset your password. As this will simply be creating login credentials for Gradescope, it will not affect the login credentials for your school account.  

Reset your password

If you have an existing Gradescope account but cannot remember your password, select Forgot Password?. Enter the email address associated with your account and we will send an email with a reset link. Once you have reset your password, you can return to the app and log in. 

Courses and assignments

Courses

Once you log in, all of your enrolled courses will be displayed. To enroll in a new course:

  1. Select the + icon to the right of the Courses heading at the top of the screen. 
  2. Enter your course code.
If you do not have a course code, reach out to your instructor who can either enroll you or provide you with the code. 
  1. Select Add course.

Any new courses which you add via the app will also appear on your account when accessing the Gradescope website.

Assignments

To access an assignment, select the course it is held within. The assignments are split into three categories:

  • Not Submitted - Any assignments that you have not yet submitted to are displayed here. If the assignment has passed its due date, the date will appear in red. 
  • Submitted - Any assignments that you have submitted to, but have not yet been graded, will appear here. A preview of your submission will be displayed. You are also able to resubmit from here if the settings allow for it. 
  • Graded - A link to the Gradescope website is provided where you can log in to view your graded submission and submit regrade requests.

Submitting to your assignment 

There are two methods for submitting to your assignment using the mobile app. You can scan each page of your work, or if you are using an iOS device, you can also search for your submission on your device for uploading

If there is a template provided by your instructor for the assignment, a PDF will be available for download on the submission page. To locate the downloaded template:

  • iOS - Access the Files app and select Browse for On My iPhone. A Gradescope folder should be listed, containing PDFs of your downloaded templates.
  • Android - Access the Files app and select Downloads. Your downloaded PDF templates will be listed in your historic download date and time order.
