    Grant those with grading authority with the ability to override the "incorrect" flag on auto-graded questions.


    Situation: Right now, I have to use the "multiple blanks" type of questions given that Canvas still doesn't have "multiple numerical answers" as an option. This means that a student who types 1.66 instead of 1.67 loses all the points on their assignment (and this can actually happen due to calculator round error, not student error). While we can manually regrade those questions and give the students their earned points, the student still has the red "incorrect" flag on their answer, which leads to emails, unless we **also** compile a comment indicating that the answer was correct. This is a chore if there is a problem with (a)-(h) answers and students have some correct, and some incorrect answers.
