Can Xavvi generate sensible text output as well as code?

My day to day work is in medical education – and assessment specifically. I’m interested in using LLMs to (1) help generate assessment items (well draft versions of them at least) and (2) individualised descriptive feedback based on assessment performance.

But, rather than trying to get LC/Xavvi to do it all I think I’ll likely end up using LC draw on the relevant data to construct an appropriate query, passing that to the LLM (ChatGPT, BioMedLM or whatever) via API to generate and return the response, and then having LC deal with it from there (e.g. upload to assessment item bank for further work; assemble and distribute feedback report).

A few hours yesterday spent crafting and refining inputs and queries suggests that’s all entirely possible.

Should be fun!
