About us

For educators and students

Our mission is to give every computing educator the opportunity to maximize their teaching performance, so that their students get the highest quality of education. CodeGrade started as a university project at the University of Amsterdam to make our lives as TAs easier, and for students to get the feedback they need to be successful in computer science education. Today, we are helping many institutions worldwide.

History and future of CodeGrade

Our story

  • 2015
    Students Computer Science
    In our introductory programming courses, we noticed that we had to wait weeks at times to get very brief feedback on our assignments. 
  • 2016
    Grading workload as a TA
    As teaching assistants in various programming courses, we noticed that the workflow was inefficient and did not allow for us to spend the time to give students the feedback they required to improve.  This motivated us to develop a tool to improve this workflow.
  • 2018
    CodeGrade established
    We further developed the system to improve the marking and feedback workflow, with the funding from the University of Amsterdam and collaboration with professors in the institution. By 2018, we officially established ourselves as a spin-off of the UvA.
  • 2019
    Going worldwide
    With a highly improved product which features included inline comments, LMS integration, advanced autotests and rubrics, we rolled out CodeGrade to the rest of Europe, the UK, North America and Australia.
  • 2030
    Helping teachers and students globally
    By collaborating with top universities and teachers, we keep improving our services and toolset to give every student the programming education they deserve and educators the tools they need!
