As your students submit their work, you get to watch the results roll in. For each assignment, we show some grade analytics and allow you to manually update grades when necessary.
Bakpax currently shows the grade trends for any given assignment in addition to a graph of the assignment scores.
We are also developing a suite of powerful, yet easy-to-understand, charts and graphs to record student results on every question and analyze trends over time. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you look for when grading student responses. We would love to hear what YOU find most valuable so that we can help you track useful statistics.
To view student responses, go to the Assigned Work page and select the assignment. When you open it, you will see a histogram of the score distribution at the top of the results page. The class median and class average will be listed to the left of the diagram.
Beneath the histogram, all of your students will be listed. If a student has not submitted, there will be dashes under their name. If the student has submitted, then you will see their overall grade and their grade for each individual problem. If any problem is marked with an apple, then it needs to be graded by the teacher. To grade, or check, a problem, just click on the grade.
From the results page, you can also select to grade by student or grade by problem. To grade by student, click on the student name to view an individual's submission details. To grade by problem, select the sparkle icon in the top right corner of the page.
At this time, Bakpax does not make cheating easier or more difficult for students. We plan on adding several cheating detection and prevention features in the future. If you are interested in such features, please contact us.
Grading Based on Work
If you would like to grade homework based on if students show work, or do not show work, you will have to use the manual grade format. This means that you will see the question/answer box where the student can show work and write their answer and then grade the problem yourself.
Bakpax gives students instant feedback. After they finish a question, many students are curious whether they got it right or wrong. That’s the time when feedback is the most useful. Students are never more interested in a question than they are at that exact moment.
It’s essential for teachers to use homework in order to keep their finger on the pulse of the class. Bakpax doesn’t replace this process; we make it better than ever. Teachers can’t memorize every student’s right/wrong response on every homework question ever assigned, or the patterns that emerge from all those collected responses. Bakpax does it for you, and presents it to you in our user-friendly charts and reports.
There’s no reason for teachers to collect pieces of paper any more, because they now get a digital copy of every student’s assignment. Any time you want to look at student work, you can instantly bring up an image of it and see what they may have done wrong. We are also developing a feature to make it possible for teachers to communicate directly with students about their responses. Please contact us if you are interested in following these updates.
You can grade graph, table, open response, and diagram problems by setting the Auto-grade status to "off." This means, you will grade the answer by looking at the student response.
Then, when your students are completing their assignment, have them draw or write their response in the answer box.
Once you have opened your assignment from the Assigned Work page, you can grade the submissions by problem or student. (You can read more about how to use Manual Grading for your subject in our Bakpax for My Subject article.)
Grade by Problem
To grade the assignment by problem, click on the sparkle icon at the top of the page.
This grade feature allows you to quickly view student responses for each problem and mark them as correct or incorrect with the ✓ or ✗.
Grade by Student
To grade the assignment by student, scroll down the assignments results page and click on the student’s name. This will open their individual results page.
Here, you can click on any problem to view the details or change the grade. We will then show you what the student wrote, how the AI read their answer, and the current grade.
To change the grade, use the ✗ or ✓ in the top-right corner. You can also click on the answer and edit it with your keyboard if you’d like to correct the detected answer.
