Digital Gradebooks & Digital Notebooks

Thursday, January 11, 10 am - Noon, Library 107C

Digital Gradebooks: Gradescope is grading system that was designed to help faculty grade traditional paper-based assessments online, and it is currently used by many schools and courses with large enrollments in STEM fields. Unlike other methods of grading homework digitally, such as uploading assignments to Blackboard, Gradescope offers a range of features that help faculty grade more efficiently. This hands-on workshop will highlight some of Gradescope's features and show how it was used in an upper level, proof-based math course. Participants will then get the chance to upload paper-based assignments and set up grading templates for themselves. (Session led by Laura McSweeney)

Digital Notebooks: Tired of collecting and grading stacks of paper notebooks? Annoyed when students literally print out and paste data into their labbooks? Wish students could work collaboratively while still tracking each student’s contribution? Come learn how to use Quip as a digital laboratory notebook and course management system. First hand experience will be shared from Biochemistry and Organic Chemistry laboratories. (Session led by Aaron Van Dyke)
