Types of problems that Bakpax can grade

Currently, Bakpax supports four types of questions. They are Blank Question, Multiple Choice, True or False, and Draw on Image

  • Blank Question: Students are required to write a text or mathematical answer in an answer box.
  • Multiple Choice: Students are provided with a list of options and must select the correct option. They can write any variation of the multiple choice option in the answer box. (For example, we would accept “b,” “B,” “b) OPTION,” and more as equivalent.) 
  • True or False: Students are asked to determine if the information is true or false. We will automatically include the instructions “True or false? Write below.” for these questions. 
  • Draw on Image: Students draw on a background such as a graph or picture. Teachers can then see the submitted image and can mark it as correct or incorrect. 

Please note that we can autograde any mathematical or short response answer. Our autograding for longer responses and Draw on Image type questions is limited. For these types of questions, teachers should use a manual grade option. (Details about manual grading can be found here.)

For any type of question, you can add an image and/or blank work space.

More details about how you can customize assignments can be found here.

English Language Arts

Here are some ideas for how you can use Bakpax if you teach English Language Arts. 

Autogradable Questions for ELA:

Use Blank Question, Multiple Choice, or True or False to create autogradable questions. Below are some examples we have for how to use Blank Questions.

Vocabulary

You can use Bakpax for assignments that test students’ knowledge of vocabulary and terms. In this assignment, students identify the figurative language in passages from Romeo and Juliet.

Spelling

You can use Bakpax for spelling tests. Students can listen to the spoken words, spell them. Once they submit their work, they’ll receive feedback with the correct spelling, and you'll instantly see which words your students need more help with.

(See full assignment here.)

Grammar

For grammar assignments, students can fix sentences, identify parts of speech, and use conventions of proper English.

(See full assignment here.)

Manual Grade Questions for ELA: 

Use Blank Question or Draw on Image type to create manual grade questions. 

(For more information about Manual Grade questions, click here.)

While the AI cannot autograde questions that are drawings or have a variety of subjective answers (i.e. opinion, long written answer, or reflection questions), you can still include these questions in your assignments and grade them manually in Bakpax. 

Diagrams

Use Draw On Image questions for charts and diagrams.

(See full assignment here.)

Free Response 

Use Blank Questions for short, free-response questions.

(See full assignment here.)

Tip: Make the section "One Column" and choose "Long" for the answer length to provide students with the largest amount of space to write.
