# Exporting Assignment Grades, Evaluations, and Submissions

Updated

On an assignment's Review Grades page, you can download documents of data on the following: assignment gradesassignment evaluations, and assignment submissions. To view this data, click the corresponding "download" button in the footer of the Review Grades page (see image below). Check out the video above (if you haven't already) or keeping reading for a more in-depth look at how to access the data documents and what you'll find in them.

In this file, you'll find the following for each student in your course: their first and last name; their student ID (if IDs were added to the course roster); their email; any extra columns of info that were added to the course roster (e.g., section numbers); their total score and the max possible points on this assignment; their assignment status (i.e., Graded, Ungraded, or Missing); their submission ID generated by Gradescope; the date and time their work was submitted; their view count (how many times they viewed their graded, published submission); and the number of points they received on each question. For student-uploaded assignments, you’ll also see a Submission Count column and a Lateness column in H:M:S format. For students who submit before the due date, lateness will be recorded as 00:00:00 in the spreadsheet.

#### Exporting assignment evaluations

When you click the Export Evaluations button on the Review Grades page, a zipped folder of spreadsheets, one for each question and subquestion in the assignment, will automatically download to your computer.

More about point values and rubric numbers: Click to enlarge the image above which shows the evaluation spreadsheet for Question 1.1 of an assignment. In the header row, you can see that there were three rubric items in Question 1.1: "Correct," "Partial Credit," and "Incorrect." In the Rubric Numbers row at the bottom of the spreadsheet, 1.1.1 refers to the first rubric item listed in Question 1.1, which, in this case, is the "Correct" rubric item. That means 1.1.2 refers to the second rubric item, "Partial Credit," and 1.1.3 refers to the third rubric item, "Incorrect." In the Point Values row, we see that rubric item 1.1.1 ("Correct") was worth 3 points, 1.1.2 ("Partial Credit") was worth 1.5 points, and 1.1.3 ("Incorrect") was worth 0 points.

#### Exporting assignment submissions

No submission exporting in Online Assignments: If your students completed an Online Assignment, you will not have the option to export their submissions. If you'd like a single CSV spreadsheet of all your student's answers to all questions in an Online Assignment, contact help@gradescope.com.
##### Exam, Homework, and Bubble Sheet Assignments

To export submissions made to an Exam, Homework, or Bubble Sheet Assignment, click the Export Submissions button on the Review Grades page. When you do that, Gradescope will download a folder containing a submission metadata file and PDFs of each student's latest submission. Gradescope will also email you a link to a zipped folder of the same files.

How do I know which submission PDF belongs to each student? The filename of each student's exported submission PDF is their submission ID number. Submission IDs can be found in the submission metadata file in the exported submissions folder and in the Submission ID column in the Download Grades spreadsheet.

When you open a student's submission PDF, on the first pages, you'll find the following: their overall score; the full rubric (unless you've changed the default Rubric Item Visibility settings); the rubric items you applied; the comments you entered; and the text box annotations you added to the student's work. Notice that each text box annotation has a circled number next to it. On the latter pages of the PDF, you'll find the student's submission, any pencil annotations you gave the student (e.g., corrections you hand drew on their work using Gradescope's pencil tool), and circled numbers indicating where you gave the student a text box annotation. Note that any LaTeX you used in your text box annotations will appear as LaTeX syntax rather than text or equations on the first pages of the PDF (see image below).

##### Programming Assignments

Programming Assignments will also allow you to export submissions from the Review Grades page. When you click the Export Submissions button in a Programming Assignment, Gradescope will export a zipped file of folders for each student. The filename of each folder is the student's submission ID number (see note in the section above for more on submission IDs). In each folder, you'll find the student's raw submission, and in the overarching zipped file, you'll find a single submission_metadata.yml file containing info from the autograder output for all students. Please note that Programming Assignments do not allow you to export data on questions you graded manually.

#### Posting assignment grades to an LMS

Check out our LMS Workflow section for instructions on how to post Gradescope assignment grades in BlackboardBrightspace (D2L)CanvasMoodle, and Sakai to Gradescope. The LMS Workflow section of the Help Center also contains step-by-step instructions, images, and gifs about how to use Gradescope with an LMS as an instructor and a student.

Alternatively, check out the LMS Integration video on our Get Started page to see how to connect your LMS to Gradescope and post grades from the Gradescope website. Please note that the video only shows one method for using Gradescope with an LMS, but updated videos for each LMS are in the works.
