Frequently asked questions

GradeAssist makes grading essays fast and easy. Work smarter with your own customized rubric criteria, personalized AI feedback and annotations, plagiarism check, grade prediction and AI writing detection on essays.
GradeAssist ensures utmost accuracy in grading and feedback by allowing you to input your own rubric criteria. It uses AI to analyze the student's submission only based on your criteria, so you're in control. It's super easy to get started, just copy the "Level 4" section of your rubric, and GradeAssist will take care of the rest!
We work hard to make GradeAssist's Grade predictions as accurate as possible. Some students have received final marks 1% above their predicted grade, but a grade within ± 5% is normal.
We take pride in GradeAssist being the most fair and objective grading tool available. We believe that the professional judgement of teachers is key to fair grading, which is why our tools only use the criteria and grade level provided by the teacher to evaluate work. We acknowledge the biases that generative AI technology may introduce, which is why we rigourously test our systems, and always remind our users that teachers are in the driver's seat.
GradeAssist does not replace teachers. In fact, we believe that humans are crucial to a fair education system. That being said, GradeAssist is a suite of tools that help teachers save time grading and reduce bias, by providing an objective preliminary analysis on student work.
