Final Exam Fill-in-the-Blank Marking Concern

Final Exam Fill-in-the-Blank Marking Concern


I just finished the final, and I am slightly worried about the marking of the fill-in-the-blank questions. In some of my other courses, there have been issues with getting fill-in-the-blank questions wrong due to Canvas only accepting one particular way of writing the answer, even if someone else wrote a correct answer in a different way.

Will the fill-in-the-blank questions be marked manually or automatically, and if they are automatic, will we lose marks for formatting an answer differently (ex. 'vertisol' vs. 'Vertisol' vs. 'vertisolic' vs. 'Vertisolic')?

Blaise, pls do not worry - we will mark this question manually and will NOT subtract marks for incorrect spelling
