I have a similar situation with some math problems I've made.  Perhaps the following can be adapted to what you need?

<formularesponse samples="x at -3:3#4" id="101">
       <responseparam name="tol" type="tolerance" default="0.1%" description="Numerical Tolerance" />
        <answergroup type="ordered">
            <answer name="both" type="unordered">
        <textline readonly="no" size="30" /> + <textline readonly="no" size="30" />

Hi All,

I know this can be done using a customresponse and will go ahead with that if needed, but I wanted to see if I was overlooking something built into Lon-Capa…  We want students to give the IUPAC names of the five structural isomers of C6H14. Is there a way to create a stringresponse with multiple text entry areas that will then check to see that all five answers have been entered without regard to order?  Somehow I thought I had seen somewhere that that could be done and if the wheel has already been invented…  Thanks as always,
