Is there a blurb about Gradescope that I can share on my syllabus?


Yes. Feel free to include the blurbs below (or any part of it that is relevant to your course and assignments) in your syllabus.

For a introductory blurb to Gradescope, you can use the following two paragraphs. If students will be logging in through a Learning Management System (LMS), such as Blackboard, Brightspace, Canvas, Moodle, and Sakai, please remove the second paragraph below and instead direct students to the relevant LMS guide for info on how to access Gradescope: 

We will be using Gradescope this term, which allows us to provide fast and accurate feedback on your work. Homework will be submitted through Gradescope, and homework and exam grades will be returned through Gradescope. As soon as grades are posted, you will be notified immediately so that you can log in and see your feedback. You may also submit regrade requests if you feel that there is a mistake in the grading.
To access Gradescope, click the Log In button on the Gradescope website and enter your university email. Then enter your existing password if you have one, or click Forgot Password to reset it or create one for the first time.

If you have students submitting their own assignments in Gradescope, you can use the following blurb:

You can use your phone’s camera or another scanner to upload work to Gradescope. To use your phone’s camera, download the Gradescope mobile app on the App Store or Google Play and follow the prompts. If you are unable to scan in your assignments for any reason, please talk to me to make alternative arrangements. All submissions to Gradescope must be clear, legible, and double-checked to ensure all answers are properly marked. You will receive an email confirmation once your assignment is successfully submitted; please retain this for your records.

If you plan to use Gradescope to manage regrade requests (we recommend setting standards for a time limit and the submissions specifically for regrade requests in your syllabus), you can use the following blurb:

Gradescope allows for you to request a regrade on individual questions if you think you were scored incorrectly. Regrade requests will open after your grades are posted and will remain open for [Time Period]. All regrade requests should specify exactly what you feel was graded incorrectly and, if appropriate, a justification for why you think the grade should be changed.
