Using Gradescope with Sakai as a Student

Find out how to access Gradescope, submit assignments, and view grades and submissions in Sakai.

Accessing Gradescope

Accessing Gradescope

When accessing Gradescope through Sakai, 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 Sakai before, Select Log In and then Forgot your password?. Enter the email address you use for Sakai 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 Sakai 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 Sakai, unless you have used different email addresses.

Check out the Troubleshooting section if you have any problems accessing your Gradescope account.

Submitting Assignments

Submitting assignments

  1. Log in to Sakai. Click your course.
    • To find your course from the Sakai homepage: Click Sites > Type the course name in the Filter Sites search bar > Click the course name.
  2. There are a couple of places you should check to find your Gradescope assignment: the Lessons page or the Gradescope link in the left sidebar of Sakai.
    • First, check the Lessons page by clicking Lessons in the left sidebar of Sakai.
      • If you see a link to your Gradescope assignment there, you can click it and you will be taken directly to the assignment in Gradescope.
    • If you don't have a Lessons link in your sidebar or don't see the assignment linked on your Lessons page, click the Gradescope link in the left sidebar of Sakai. This will take you to your course dashboard in Gradescope. Then on your course dashboard, click the assignment you'd like to submit.
  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 Sakai and non-Sakai users.  For more information, check out our Submitting Assignments section.

      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

Viewing grades and submissions

  1. Log in to Sakai. Click your course and then click Gradebook in the left sidebar. If your instructor has posted grades to Sakai, you will see your overall assignment grade here.
  2. To view your submission and feedback, click Gradescope in the left sidebar of Sakai to launch your Gradescope Course Dashboard. When Gradescope launches, click your assignment.
    • Alternatively, if your instructor created one, you can click the direct link to your Gradescope assignment on the Lessons page in Sakai.
  3. Once your Gradescope assignment launches, if your instructor has published grades to Gradescope, you will be able to see your submission, points breakdown, and any comments your instructor gave you.
