Automatically grade a coding question

I'm working with a faculty member to find a way to grade coding questions. The problem is that a given coding question can have an arbitrarily large number of correct solutions. For example she could ask her students to provide

age == 20

as an answer. The students could also provide

20 == age

age  ==  20

20  ==  age

and more as correct answers. Providing every possible correct answer for "Fill in the Blank" would be more work than just grading the questions by hand. Is there a way to rephrase questions like this to facilitate grading? Maybe there's a (free) Canvas integration that can accommodate this? Perhaps embed a website like codingbat into the question?

Community Coach,

We are giving the Instructional Designers area a little bit of love and just want to check in with you.  This will also bring this question new attention. 


I apologize for your questions sitting in the community so long without a response.  It looks like you have stumped the Canvas Community.


Were you able to find an answer to your question? I am going to go ahead and mark this question as answered because there hasn't been any more activity in a while so I assume that you have the information that you need. If you still have a question about this or if you have information that you would like to share with the community, by all means, please do come back and leave a comment.  Also, if this question has been answered by one of the previous replies, please feel free to mark that answer as correct.
