The following is an incomplete list of tools for use when students are to submit work
|Canvas assignments: with Assignments in Canvas, you can have students submit a written response to an assignment, or attach a media recording or other file as their submission. Grading is integrated into Canvas (i.e., grades get pushed to the gradebook), and it supports the use of rubrics. There is also a peer grading option if you would like students to grade the work of other students. This tools is highly appropriate for cases where students submit artifacts as attachments for grading (e.g. lab and design reports, presentation files, scanned solutions to homework or take-home exams, etc.).
|Canvas quizzes (see above) can be used with an expanded list of question styles if you are willing to include human grading. This includes short answer and essay questions, as well as the possibility for file uploads.
|Crowdmark: Crowdmark is an online grading tool for simultaneous use by multiple graders. It uses QR codes to identify each page of an uploaded assignment, and link that to a specific student. Return of graded work to students is done digitally, simplifying that process and also preserving the integrity of the original work, and providing a digital record for accreditation. (For a detailed assessment in a large first-year engineering course context, see CEEA2016-paper 136.) Crowdmark operates in two modes:
|Gradescope: Gradescope is an online grading tool similar to Crowdmark in that it can be used simultaneously by multiple graders. In addition, Gradescope offers the ability to create and adapt rubrics in real-time during grading, and it utilizes AI to assist with categorizing student work to expedite grading.
