Box In-Line Grading

TritonEd's inline grading tool for Assignments is now powered by Box. New Box View has replaced the Crocodoc inilne grading feature in your courses, with the same general workflows and interface elements. This includes slight differences in the interface, including several improvements and expanded support for new file types.

Changes and updates include:

  • More compatible file types including DOC, PDF, PPT, XLS, PNG, and MP4
  • Point-based comments and highlighting (single color)
  • Download/print without annotations
    Note: Previous comments using Crocodoc in FA17 or earlier are embedded in the paper and will appear as red tags on printed assignments. Use Adobe's Comments and Markups settings to print.

Gradescope

UC San Diego has now acquired a site license for Gradescope, an online grading platform for paper-based, handwritten assignments and exams. Gradescope streamlines grading and provides statistics to better understand how students are learning. If you already have an existing @ucsd.edu account with Gradescope, your account has automatically been transitioned to the licensed version.

Getting Started:gradescope.png
