The following is a guide for how to use Bakpax for the subject(s) you teach.

If you use Bakpax for other subjects, we’d love to hear from you at hello@bakpax.com.

TYPES OF QUESTIONS BAKPAX CAN GRADE

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

**Please note that we can autograde any mathematical or short response answer. Our autograding for longer responses and drawings is limited. For open response questions, we advise that teachers use a manual grade option. (Details about manual grading can be found here.)

Question Types
  1. Blank Question: Students are required to write a text or mathematical answer in an answer box.
  2. 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.)
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

You can add images and blank work space to any question.
