Change points in selfcorrecting tests

When I create a self-correcting test for students, for example with "fill in"- quiestions, I sometimes need to write variations of the possible answers. But as its almost impossible to imagine all the variations the students may write, it would also be nice to be able to manually change the points for a certain question after the automatic grading.

For example: I have a question about chromosomes and gender and i want the students to answer "X" or "Y". But instead of just "X" one student writes "X-chromosome".
The answer is correct, but as I hadn't written that as a possible answer the student gets 0 points on the question. When I check the students test I would like to be able to manuallt change that point, if i want to.
