    When entering a value into a numeric field, the student has no clue whether te use a dot or a comma as decimal separator, though Blackboard is very picky about this. Two suggestions:

    * Indicate which character to use as decimal separator

    * Insert the correct decimal separator when typing a dot or a comma (the Excel way)

     

    We now had an exam in which for half of the students their answer 0.56 was marked 'correct', the other half answered 0.56 and it was marked 'incorrect'. Not a single visual clue to the instructor of what the cause of this issue was. Blackboard's response: this is functioning as designed.....
