When accessing Gradescope through Moodle, simply navigate to your course and select the Gradescope tool link in your course module. You will not need to log into Gradescope separately.
If you would prefer to access Gradescope directly, visit the Gradescope website, and follow whichever step applies to you:
- If your school appears on this list, simply select your school and log in with your existing school username and password.
- If you’ve used Gradescope in Moodle before, Select Log In and then Forgot your password?. Enter the email address you use for Moodle and you will be sent an email which will allow you to set a password for Gradescope and log in.
- Have never used Gradescope but have a course code? Select Sign Up and then enter your course code and Moodle email address. You will be sent an email which will allow you to set a password for Gradescope and log in.
You will be taken to the same Gradescope account whether you access it directly or via Moodle, unless you have used different email addresses. If you end up with multiple accounts under multiple emails, you can merge your accounts. Check out the Troubleshooting section at the end of this page if you have any problems accessing your Gradescope account.
- Log in to Moodle. Click your course.
- Next click the link to your Gradescope course or assignment on your Moodle course page. This will launch Gradescope either in a new tab or right in Moodle. Depending on your instructor's settings, you may also need to select your assignment in Gradescope when it opens.If you have any problems accessing your Gradesope account, see the Troubleshooting section at the end of this page.
- Based on your instructor's settings, next you could see instructions to upload PDFs or images, link code repositories, or start answering questions online. At this point, the way students submit Gradescope assignments is the same for Moodle and non-Moodle users so check out the in-depth articles on scanning work (if needed) and how you may be asked to submit your assignment. Keep in mind that if you encounter an error message trying to access your Gradescope assignment, the assignment may not be released to students yet.
- Once you've submitted the assignment, if your instructor has allowed it, you can view your submission. If you don't have that option, then you will be able to view your work when your instructor publishes grades.
Viewing grades and submissions
- Log in to Moodle. Click your course.
- Then click Grades from in the left sidebar. If your instructor has posted grades to Moodle, you will see your score and the total possible points for this assignment.
- To view your Gradescope submission and feedback, either click the Gradescope link back on your course page or click the Gradescope assignment link in the second tab of your User Report table.
- Once Gradescope launches, if your instructor has published grades there, you will be able to see your submission, points breakdown, and any comments your instructor gave you.
When it's time to submit work, if you don't see a Gradescope course or assignment link on your Moodle course page, or if clicking on the course or assignment link in Moodle doesn't take you to Gradescope, your instructor may not have linked your Gradescope course and assignment to Moodle correctly. If that's the case, go to the Gradescope website, click the Log In button, and enter the email address you use to access Moodle (e.g., your school email). Next, either enter your existing password for the Gradescope website or click Forgot your password? to reset it or create one for the first time. As long as you've entered the email address you use to access Moodle, you will be taken to the same Gradescope account you would have accessed through Moodle. If you find that your courses and assignments are split across multiple accounts, see the Help Center article on merging accounts.
