If you've opted in to testing our Beta features, you will have the ability to use AI to parse uploaded PDFs. This can be very helpful when you have pre-made assignments that you want to import into Formative. Eliminating the need to manually enter each of the questions from the PDF into Formative - AI will process the parsing request, pull the content of the PDF and automatically apply it to PDF enhancing questions within Formative.
To parse a PDF follow the steps below:
Click on "Enhance a .PDF or .DOC" from the Add+ menu on the Formatives page (alternatively, you can also access a formative, click on the plus button and choose "Enhance a document" from the options menu)
Drag & Drop or click to Upload the docment
Once the document is populating the modal, click on "Add - Parse with AI (Beta)"
Give the system the time it needs to process the parsing request
As the system completes processing, the PDF will populate your formative and the questions pulled from it will populate in the right side panel to enhance it.
At this point, you can review and edit the parsed questions to your liking. You can remove/add questions and content items, and edit questions and answer keys.
