  • As of Winter 2018, UCSD has licensed Gradescope. If you already had an existing account with Gradescope, your account should have been automatically transitioned to the institutional license.
  • As of Fall 2018, Gradescope integration with TritonEd for automatic class roster and gradebook management can be OPTIONALLY enabled by ITS-ETS on a per course by request basis.  Request integration EARLY in the quarter (i.e. at least 2 weeks before you want to use Gradescope to process your first exam) since it takes time for integration to be setup.
  • As of 04/02/2019, UC has acquired a systemwide agreement for Gradescope.
