Grade answer sheets all within Canvas

GradeHub empowers educators to grade answer sheets all within Canvas (see press release). The result is GradeHub provides you with a modern approach for processing answer sheets that will be welcomed by instructors and students.

As you can see in the screenshots and video, our team went to great lengths to create an experience that is familiar, convenient, and powerful. Classes, rosters, exams, and grades are all automatically synchronized. We also designed the flow so that experience for your faculty is seamless.

GradeHub is designed to help testing centers and IT teams provide a modern exam scanning service that is welcomed by instructors and students

How it Works

Step 1 - use your same test  Use your same test

Instructors use their same test (probably a Word document), so the transition for instructors to GradeHub is effortless.

Link GradeHub to your course in Canvas. Then create a new “Assignment” in Canvas for your upcoming exam (e.g., Final), select GradeHub as the “Submission Type.”

That is it. GradeHub automatically creates answer sheets for all of the students in the class (i.e., your Canvas roster).

Before the exam, have students print out their GradeHub answer sheet from Canvas or instructors can print blank answer sheets too. Student answer sheets are prefilled to avoid mismarked student IDs. To print answer sheets, simply choose the “Assignment” in Canvas and select the PDF icon from GradeHub.

After testing, collect the answer sheets just like scantrons. Bring the answer sheets to your exam scanning service or instructors can upload answer sheets on their own too. All you need is a regular scanner. GradeHub reads multi-page PDF files to score your exam.
