Synchronizing your Canvas roster with Gradescope

The Gradescope Canvas integration allows you to:

  • Copy your Canvas roster to Gradescope
  • Send grades from Gradescope to the Canvas Grades tool

Go to the Course Settings in your Gradescope course

Log in to Canvas and authorize the connection to Gradescope

You will need to log in to Canvas and you will be asked to authorize the connection between Canvas and Gradescope. You will only need to do this once.

NOTE: If you are an administrator in Canvas you should not use the Canvas integration. Please contact [email protected] for options.

Click the "Select a course..." drop-down to select the Canvas course you want to link to your Gradescope course. NOTE: you can only link one Canvas course to each Gradescope course.

The linked course will  now appear in Course Settings.

Click on the Gradescope Roster

Click "Sync Canvas Roster" at bottom of page

Click "Sync Roster" on the pop-up screen

NOTE: you may want to uncheck the "Let new users know that they were added to the course" option. Otherwise, your students will receive an email telling them they were added to the Gradescope course.

Review roster when synchronization is complete

NOTE: after synchronization you will see a notification at the top of the page confirming the number of users added or removed.
