“We’re honored that Gradescope is a 2019 SIIA CODiE Award winner,” said Arjun Singh, Turnitin vice president, STEM products and technologies. “Gradescope was created by teaching assistants who experienced first-hand the challenges associated with grading assignments and exams in large STEM courses. We built Gradescope to help instructors give high-quality feedback to their students in hours rather than days, and we appreciate SIIA for recognizing Gradescope’s positive impact in STEM and science courses.”
Gradescope integrates the latest machine learning capabilities to dramatically eliminate redundant work from the grading process, particularly for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) courses. Gradescope streamlines the digital collection of work, accelerates consistent and unbiased grading, and presents meaningful statistics to help identify class trends and student needs.
"The 2019 CODiE award winners represent the best of a new class of innovative products that are disrupting education and adding new efficiencies for educators and administrators. These exciting new products are opening doors for learners of all ages by developing and utilizing new technologies to respond to student and educator needs,” said Jeff Joseph, SIIA president. “Congratulations to Gradescope and all our honorees!”
The winners were announced by the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, during the SIIA Ed Tech Conference and CODiE Awards in San Francisco this week. Thirty-four awards were given for products and services deployed specifically for education and learning professionals, including the top honor of the best overall Education Technology Solution.
A SIIA CODiE Award win is a prestigious honor, as each award winner was first reviewed by expert judges including educators and administrators whose evaluations determined the finalists. SIIA members then voted on the finalist products, and the scores from both rounds were tabulated to select the winners. See all the winning products at http://www.siia.net/codie/2019-Winners.
