    Currently there's no auto-graded way for Blackboard to give partial credit to a misspelled answer and full credit the the correctly-spelled answer on a fill in the blank question. 

     

    You can add multiple correct answers and include some misspellings, but they will all be marked as correct and given full credit. 

     

    More generally, just being able to give certain answers partial or less credit than others for a fill in the blank question would be useful -- especially for Biology where misspellings are common but it's necessary to know the correct spelling of vocabulary words.
