I have made the change in the /gift/format.php file. Then when I go in and check a question, the case sensitivity drop down still says "NO, case is unimportant." Does this mean it is not working? Should it be changed to "Yes, case must match."
Case Sensitivity in GIFT?
@Kim, changing $question->usecase = 0; to $question->usecase = 1 in your moodle/question/format/gift/format.php file will only work for new imports of short answer questions in GIFT files, not for questions you imported before you made the change to your moodle/question/format/gift/format.php file.
This is how it originally looked in the format.php file when I first opened it //$question->usecase = 0; // Ignore case
After removing the // in front of the "$question", it worked. I had just over looked that. So now it looks like this and works!
$question->usecase = 1; // Ignore case
