Gradescope by Turnitin named “Best STEM Solution for HigherEd” by 2021 EdTech Breakthrough Awards
MANILA, Philippines, 10 June 2021 – Today, EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization, named Gradescope by Turnitin the “Best STEM Solution for HigherEd” in the third annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards.
Initially created as an assessment platform for STEM and business courses, Gradescope has expanded to optimize grading workflows for all subject areas and assessment types. Through the platform, educators can easily build, administer, organize, and grade paper-based, digital, and code assignments in-person and virtually. Gradescope supports: streamlined grading workflows, which help scale high-quality assessment; consistent and fair evaluation through its AI-assisted grading, code autograder, and dynamic rubrics; and actionable insights into student performance and course trends.
“The burden of grading in STEM courses is often divided between instructors and groups of TAs. With Gradescope’s dynamic rubrics and online grading platform, it’s easy to coordinate among graders and evaluate consistently from student to student and class to class,” said EdTech Breakthrough Managing Director James Johnson. “Gradescope’s assessment platform breaks through the EdTech market with leading-edge AI technology to dramatically reduce the pain and time associated with traditional grading.”
“With increased grading efficiency and effectiveness through Gradescope, instructors and students are able to spend more time on what truly matters: improving learning outcomes,” said Turnitin CEO Chris Caren. “Especially with the added pressures from the pandemic and mass shift to virtual learning, we are committed to delivering innovative, user-friendly tools that support educators, enhance assessment, and help students achieve their full potential.”
