Now choose the type of assessment:

  • Homework / Problem Set
    This is the most commonly used type of assignment. Students write answers by hand on paper, then scan the work and upload it to Gradescope.
  • Online Assignment
    For assessments which contain multiple choice questions – but optionally also some short answer questions, or questions where students need to submit a scanned copy of handwritten work. Similar to a Blackboard Test.
  • Programming Assignment
    For assessments submitting code.

If appropriate, you can copy assignments both within a course, and from one course to another – see Duplicating an Assignment.
