LaTeX can be used to include math symbols in rubric items, comments, text annotations, and more within Gradescope.


Gradescope currently supports two modes of using LaTeX:

  • Inline mode - Put $$ around your LaTeX markup, and Gradescope will render your math expressions inline with text.
  • Display (Paragraph) mode - Put $$$ delimiters around your LaTeX markup. Your math expressions will appear larger and in a separate paragraph.

Please note: In the student-specific comment box, LaTeX does not currently render on the grading page. However, your students will be able to see the properly rendered notation when they view the comment. To double check that your LaTeX comment was rendered correctly, you can go to the Review Grades page and click on the student’s name to see their view of the submission.
