January New Features: Extra Short Answer Boxes, Smarter AI, and *MAGIC!*
We’re kicking off 2020 with a handful of new features to improve your Bakpax experience. Check them out:
Extra-Short Answer Boxes
You now have even more control over the layout of your assignment. New one-line answer boxes are perfect for your short answer questions – and for saving paper!
When creating or editing an assignment, just choose “Extra-Short” for the answer length.
Did you know? Answer length can range from extra-short to long. You can customize the answer length for each individual question if desired. This allows more space for students to write when needed, and it saves space when large answer boxes aren’t required.
You can now teach the AI new correct answers to a problem. All you have to do is update an answer and the AI will regrade the rest accordingly.
Watch this demo video to see this process in action:
Have you seen the new “Magic!” button? This option means you don’t have to upload your assignments. We’ll happily do it for you.
Send the assignments you want to be converted into auto-gradable Bakpax format, along with the answer key to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Our optimized assignment layouts include more intuitive question numbering.
- Preview your handout in a new tab before assigning and printing it.
- Students received a major update to Assigned Work, making it easier to keep track of assignments.
