I wrote the following question as a fill in the blank:
"What are the 5 indicators of a chemical change?"
There are 5 blanks to complete this question. This should be pretty easy to auto grade. However, a feature is needed to make this actually auto grade-able: an option to say that order does not matter. There is no particular order that students must list these 5 indicators to get this question correct. But if I was to provide alternate correct answer to show all possible permutations, I would need to enter 120 possible alternate correct answers, which I'm not going to do. A simple "Order does not matter" option when entering the correct answers for the blanks would be a quick and easy fix.
