Is there a way to add units to numerical answer questions?

In the physical sciences, a numerical answer is meaningless without units.  As far as I can tell, there doesn't seem to be a way to show units with the answer.  For example, if I as a quiz question such as:

What is the density of a cube of metal with and edge length of 1.00 cm that has a mass of 3.50 g?

I would expect the response 3.50 g/cm3

The way I did this in another course management system was to  ask the question with a variable followed by the units, i.e.,

What is the density of a cube of metal with and edge length of 1.00 cm that has a mass of 3.50 g?

[l1] g/cm3

 

Yes, I know that something like this is being voted on right now, but I must be missing something.  There must be a way to do this now, unless there no scientists or engineers on the development team.
