How do I add a new assignment?

Create Assignments Using Four Options

You have four different options for creating or finding Bakpax assignments. Details about each option can be found in our Creating Autogradable Assignments and Discover Free Assignments How-to Guides. A summary of each can be found below:

New Assignment

Use our assignment editor to create Bakpax assignments. You can customize the page layout while adding instructions, a variety of types of questions, images, and work area.

Import from File

Use our import tools to grab all of the text and image information from your existing assignments and add them to the Bakpax assignment. No typing required. Just upload a PDF or image version of your assignment, crop the text and images, and we'll add it to your assignment.

Magic!

We will import your assignments to your account for you. All you have to do is send your assignment and answer key to content@bakpax.com. We will convert them into autogradable handouts that you can use with your students.

Please send your assignments with at least 3 business days for creation and keep requests to 5 or fewer assignments to help us meet everyone's needs.

Ready-made
