Fill in the Blanks: Capitalization and Punctuation Sensitivity

Currently fill-in-the-blank-style responses will be marked wrong if the student gets the punctuation mark(s) wrong.

OpenClass is not case-sensitive, so it will not mark answers wrong for capitalization errors.

This is a bit arbitrary. Instead of Openclass choosing the behavior for us, we instructors would like to determine if punctuation/capitalization counts.

I currently use an old LMS from the year 2000 that has this feature and I attached a screenshot. Note the two simple checkboxes for caps and punctuation.

Thanks for all your hard work and I look forward to watching your evolution.
