Types of problems that Bakpax can grade

Currently, Bakpax supports three types of answer submissions. The first two types can be graded by the AI and the third type must be graded by the teacher.

  1. Text: Any solution which has alphanumeric characters. Examples of problems which could be graded as text answers are multiple choice (e.g., a, b, c, and d) or short answers that are up to 4 words long (e.g., "apples," "10 apples," and "there were 10 apples.")
    • Limitation: Longer responses are more difficult to grade as a text answer. The Manual type of solution should be used for long responses. For Text answers, the AI matches submission to an answer which the teacher enters and only marks answers as correct if it matches exactly.
  2. Math: Any solution which includes mathematical expressions. Bakpax can recognize fractions, exponents, integrals, and more types of mathematical phrasing.
  3. Manual: Any solution which the student draws or writes. When a solution is manual, Bakpax shows the teacher a clip of the page so that they can easily grade the student response. (More details about how to Manual Grade can be found here.)

Many teachers have also asked if Bakpax is able to grade essay submissions. The answer, unfortunately, is no. Bakpax is unable to support essay submissions at this time. The AI has a difficult time with long responses. It is advised that Bakpax is only used to grade alphanumeric answers, short answers, or small drawings.

English Language Arts

Here are some ideas for how you can use Bakpax if you teach ELA. 

Spelling:

If you are working on spelling, you can have students write their responses to a quiz or test on Bakpax handouts. Then, submit an image of the work and instantly see what words were difficult for each student. You can also see which word was the most difficult for the class as a whole.

Example Spelling Quiz

Vocabulary:

Bakpax can be used to test if students know new vocabulary or if they can use new vocabulary. You can give students definitions and ask them to write the new word, then have Bakpax grade the assignment for you! You could also have students use the new word in context and Bakpax will help you give them fast feedback as they submit.

Example Vocabulary Homework

Grammar:

You can also use Bakpax to test grammar. Give students grammar puzzles and have them submit work to Bakpax to see if they can fix the sentence. You could also have students name the subject, adjective(s), or verb(s) from a given sentence. 

Example Grammar Exercise

Diagrams:

With the manual answer submissions, you can have students draw diagrams in their homework. For earth science, have students draw out cloud formations! Have future biologists show their knowledge of cell division. Then, there are many molecular structures for chemistry and free-body-diagrams for physics. (More details about how to Manual Grade can be found here.)
