“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
