Extend auto grading
Auto grading for fill-the-blank. Could have a field with comma delimited acceptable responses.
I've seen a declined request for this feature based on the idea that a fill the blank could have numerous possible answers. Surely the course designer decides what is acceptable?!
Comma delimiting would give the opportunity to address this. Perhaps reporting a list of answers given and their frequency would help the course designer make improvements.
For example, if a question is answered 'incorrectly' with the same answer by many students it would alert the creator to modify the course to either include or explain why it is incorrect.
This is now available in v1.7.0 – Please read the following important information before updating, and be sure to test the update on a staging environment first – http://develop.woothemes.com/sensei/2015/02/02/sensei-1-7-0-now-available-dont-update-before-reading-this/
(Note: correct answers should be separated by a pipe character “|”)
Very glad to see my idea made the grade :)

I have several question that require a numeric answer. A list of random numbers is not a eloquent solution. I also agree a field with comma delimited acceptable responses is a good idea.
I agree with Ashley, when learning languages fill the blanks is a must have. You don't have any hints, so you can't guess and try your luck marking any answer…
I'd like to switch to Sensei, but I keep using Moodle because it offers more question types and lets me customize them.
Really, I'd suggest you to check Moodle's quiz modules for some inspiration if you want Sensei to be a good solution for any e-learning environment, particularly for language e-learning.

Amazing suggestion if I might say!
