    Many of my quizzes include Fill In the Blank or Essay question items. And invariably, a certain number of students will complete all multiple-choice type items but decline to type anything; or, they start a quiz but do not complete it. I spend a fair amount of time in Speedgrader clicking to the item #, entering a zero, moving to the bottom of the quiz and clicking SUBMIT. It is very repetitive. Canvas is able to automatically grade multiple choice and so on; it would be lovely if it could also recognize a blank text field and grade those items with a zero for me.
