How to Make Answers Case Sensitive for Fill-in-the-Blank Questions


Fill in the Blank questions present the learner with a sentence with a blanked out word and a space to respond. Depending on how the question was created, the response may be case-sensitive (by default, it is set to ignore case).


With a simple click, you can enable a case-sensitive response such that "A" and "a" are treated differently.  For instance, if the correct answer is "ABC" and a student types "abc", it will be graded as an incorrect response (not a match) if case-sensitive grading is enabled.


To enable case-sensitive grading while creating Fill in the Blank questions, select the option as shown in the screenshot below:


That is all about creating a fill-in-the-blank quiz.
