Using Gradescope with Moodle as a Student


Accessing Gradescope

When you access Gradescope through Moodle, you will not need separate Gradescope credentials, even if you are a new Gradescope user. Simply log in to Moodle, click the Gradescope link provided in your course.

If you already have a Gradescope account under the email address that's associated with your Moodle account (e.g., your school email), when you access Gradescope in Moodle, you will be taken to your existing account. If you do end up with multiple accounts under multiple emails, you can merge accounts. If you have any problems accessing your Gradesope account, see the Troubleshooting section at the end of this page.


Submitting assignments

  1. Log in to Moodle. Click your course.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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

  1. Log in to Moodle. Click your course.
  2. 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.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.

If Gradescope doesn’t appear within the embedded window in Moodle, you may need to make some small changes to your browser settings. 

  • Safari - Select Preferences from Safari’s settings and then ensure Prevent cross-site tracking is unchecked
  • Incognito mode in Chrome - Access  Select Privacy and security and then Cookies and other site data. Here you will be able to Allow all cookies.
