Special characters in multiple fill-in-the-blank quiz items

Jump to solution

I teach Spanish and would like to be able to create multiple fill-in-the-blank questions that will contain words with tildes and accent marks. Currently, Canvas does not recognize words containing these characters when I put them inside brackets [ ] as required to create this type of quiz question. Am I missing something? Is there a way to do this? If not, does Canvas have plans to allow such characters as choices in this type of quiz question? This feature would be really helpful.

Hi  @wcaston

I was confused by this quiz question type the first time i used it - the word inside the [ ] is a place marker - you put the answers in the fields below the question box.   

I have helped japanese teachers do this for their character set so it should work for you too.

Hope thay helps
