Working with Google Classroom and Bakpax together is easy! Google Classroom users can choose single sign-on when creating their Bakpax account, allowing them to access both accounts with one login. You can also import your Google Classroom and students. We make it easy to add links to Bakpax assignments for students on Google Classroom. Here’s how:

Single Sign-On (SSO) with Google Classroom

Import Your Google Classroom and Enroll Students

One-Click Share to Google Classroom

Import Your Google Classroom and Enroll Students

You can import your Google Classroom and invite your class roster to Bakpax.

First, create a classroom in Bakpax by navigating to the Classrooms page and clicking Create a new classroom button.

Then, click Import Google Classroom. You will be prompted to sign in to your Google account and select your class.

Select your desired Google Classroom, the subject, and grade level, and then click Import.

Now, your students will be invited to your Bakpax classroom.

If students already have a Bakpax account, they will automatically be enrolled in your classroom. If students do not have a Bakpax account, they will be invited by email to create one. Once they’ve created an account from the link, they will instantly be enrolled in your class.

Please note that some schools will block students from receiving external emails. This means that your school may prevent students from receiving the Bakpax invitation email. Please ask your students to check their spam folder for the Bakpax email if they are unable to find it in their inbox. If they cannot locate it, they can always go to my.bakpax.com to create an account and join your classroom using the class code. (More information about class codes can be found here.)

One-Click Share to Google Classroom

We make it easy to share directly to your Google Classroom.

On the Bakpax assignment you want to share, click Share to Classroom button.

If you signed into Bakpax with Google Single Sign-On (SSO), you should be taken directly to your Google Classroom. If you signed into Bakpax another way, you may need to sign in to your Google Classroom with your G-Suite for Education account. If your account doesn't appear, click Add account and sign in with your G Suite for Education account.

Once you have accessed your Google Classrooms, you can click  Choose class and select the class to share to. If you don't have any classes, you'll need to create one first.

Chromebooks

Using Bakpax on a Chromebook is easy. For E-Learning, students can use their Chromebooks to view, complete and submit assignments completely online. Or, students can print, complete and upload assignments using the camera on Chromebook if they prefer to work offline.  (Please see below our note regarding taking pictures with Chromebook cameras.)

Complete Assignments Online

Taking Pictures of Assignments with Chromebooks

Complete Assignments Online

When you Assign an assignment to a classroom, ensure that the Allow Students to Complete Online option is turned on.

Allow Students to Complete Online

When students log in to Bakpax and click on their assignment, they will be able to choose the option  Complete Online.

Complete Online

Students can read through the instructions, write their answers, and see their progress on the assignment.

Progress Bar

The progress bar is located above the Back and Next buttons. White indicates the current question, light purple indicates questions that have already been answered, and dark purple indicates questions that still need to be answered.

Students can also skip ahead and go back to questions that they are unsure about before submitting.

Please note that once students start an assignment, they must complete all of the questions and submit. If they exit the assignment in the middle of working, their progress will not be saved and they will have to start the assignment again upon return.
Quit AssignmentOnce students are finished, they can submit their work and get instant feedback.
Feedback

They can also see the correct answers if you turned  Show Correct Answers on when setting up the assigned work.

Results Page

This process has been designed to be engaging and motivating for students. They may even be lucky enough to see a surprise on their results page! 

As a teacher, you’ll be able to see the results roll in as assignments are submitted and keep track of student progress.

From the Assigned Work, you can see what students got correct and incorrect, and grade answers manually for questions where you turned Autograde off. For more information on manual grading, click here.

Complete Printed Assignments

Your students can take a photo of their entire, handwritten assignments and submit the file to Bakpax. To do this, they will need to fill out the Bakpax version of the assignment. (Students can download and print the assignment from their account or get a copy in class.)

The following information explains how to submit an photo of an assignment using a Chromebook. For more information on the entire upload process, click here.

a) Take a picture of the handout.

After selecting the assignment that they want to upload, students will be prompted to select a file from their computer as their submission. This file should be a picture of their handout.

b) Capture the Codes

When taking a picture of the handout, students must be sure to capture the four QR codes in the corners of the page and the barcode at the bottom. The AI will use these codes to identify the assignment and locate the answers.

c) Submit a Clear Image

Once a clear image is submitted, Bakpax will process it.

Multiple Page Assignments

If the assignment is multiple pages long, students will be prompted to upload each page individually.

Taking Pictures of Assignments with Chromebooks

Taking pictures with older model Chromebooks may present a few challenges in terms of picture quality due to low resolution. However, more recent models of Chromebooks include better and better cameras, ensuring that your picture quality will be easily readable by Bakpax.

If students are using the Chromebook camera to take a picture of their handout, they will need to watch out for the following:

  1. Clarity: Can they read their answer in the image? 
  2. Lighting: Is light coming through the paper and making it look almost see-through? Are there shadows on the page that make the handwriting illegible? 
  3. Inverted Images: Do the words appear backwards? Some computers take pictures that are mirror images of the original. That's fine for most pictures, but not for homework or tests! You can change the settings to take an "inverted" picture, which will fix this. (We are working to solve this problem on our end.) 

Here are some tips for how to remedy each of the listed difficulties.

Clarity

Try to hold the page close enough to the camera so that the handwriting is easy to read. If the page is far from the camera, it tends to be difficult to read.

Lighting

For optimal results, the page should be well lit and appear solid. There should be no light coming through the paper, making it look almost see trough. 

Inverted Images

On a Mac, when you open the image in Preview, you can select Flip Horizontal from Tools to invert the image.

On a PC, when you open the image in Paint, you can select Flip horizontal from Rotate to invert the image.
