I have found a topic from 2017 with a reply from 2018 stating that support for scientific notation is a planned feature, but I have been unable to find when its implementation is planned to be. Is it being saved for (which I understand is the next major update to Canvas's quiz feature or a new version thereof) or is has its implementation been indefinitely delayed?

I would very much appreciate know when or if this feature is going to be implemented so that I may plan my lessons and homework structure for next year accordingly. My Chemistry and Physical Science classes make regular use of scientific notation in their homework and on quizzes and tests, and a proper method of entering answers in scientific notation would greatly decrease the time required for feedback.
