Gradescope: Sync the Roster

When should I Sync the Roster?

Synching the Roster updates the membership of a Gradescope course so that it matches the corresponding Blackboard course.

You do not have to Sync the Roster in order for students to be able to submit to Gradescope – when they click on a Gradescope link in Blackboard their details will automatically be transferred to Gradescope.

You should Sync the Roster

If you have anonymised student names in your course DO NOT Sync the Roster until marking is complete and you are ready to reveal names again.

How to Sync the Roster

Go to the course Roster page.
