When an exercise requires a student to enter a variable as part of the solution, why is the scoring case sensitive?

Throughout the Dynamic Assessment System, variable entry is case-sensitive. As students progress in mathematics, they will encounter formulas that use the same letter (one uppercase and one lowercase) to represent two different quantities. Because uppercase and lowercase variables can have different meanings, students must enter variables using the case that matches the given information.
