Currently, fill-in-the-blank answers are not case sensitive. The only way a student will get the answer incorrect is if it is left blank or the answer is misspelled. You can click Add Another Answer to add as many different versions of the correct answer as possible if you desire.
Note: If a student does not enter any of the possible answers but still submits a valid response, instructors may need to manually grade the quiz to restore points that they lost.
