 Case-sensitive Answers


By default, Flubaroo will grade submissions in a case-insensitive manner. That means that if your answer key to a question is "Cat", then the following student submissions will all be graded as correct:
  • CAT
  • cat
  • Cat
For some grammar or spelling tests, this can pose a problem. 

You can override Flubaroo's default behavior by using "%cs " before your answer key submission, where "cs" stands for case-sensitive. Here's an example:


In this example, only students with the exact spelling specified in your answer key will have their submission marked as correct. 

The %CS operator can not be used with any other operators. I.E %CS and %OR can not be used together.
