It would be great if github classroom would have some support for grading. Looking at Submission and Grading Workflow (Redux) it seems that people are doing per-commit comments. That seems like a really bad idea, since students rarely make sensible commits. Reviewing the whole repo (as a PR) would make more sense (which you would get if you wouldn’t be using github classroom). But if you have jupyter notebooks you’ll look at json, which is not great.
I think using the github interface is not a good match for reviewing assignments anyway. You want the reviews be split up by sub-task so different graders can grade them. And you want a rubric, and an easy way to provide canned answers.
I looked at gradescope, but unfortunately their free tier doesn’t allow programming assignments. Has anyone tried any other solution (or has experience with gradescope)?
Will github classroom provide support for grading at some point?
I looked at https://github.com/Submitty/Submitty which seems promising, but no idea how to integrate it with github classroom.
