This article explains how to use three types of Gradescope assignments that work best when giving an assignment where students will handwrite or draw answers.
Create a Gradescope assignment. Select Online Assignments as the assignment type.
Enter the assignment questions directly into Gradescope. Add File Upload fields to questions that require students to give drawn/handwritten answers.
Have students work on the assignment in Gradescope and upload images/files of their drawn/handwritten answers to questions where you added a File Upload field. Students can upload files of any type.
Have students submit in Gradescope when they are finished. Some types of questions (e.g., multiple choice, short answer questions) will be auto-graded, and you can grade the rest using a rubric.
