(maybe) error in documentation

Is there an error in the documentation page: https://coderunner.org.nz/mod/book/view.php?id=198&chapterid=803

It states: The prototype also defines whether the correctness of the student's submission is assessed by use of an EqualityGrader, a NearEqualityGrader or RegexGrader

But isn't there another type of grader, not mentioned, where the question author can examine the student text programmatically and print a json string which tells the system what the student grade and feedback are?

section 8 mentions a TemplateGrader, but this is not mentioned in the grader section 4.   This sort of inconsistency makes the documentation difficult to understand for people who are not already experts in the system.

OK, I've added TemplateGrader to the list in section 4.

Thanks, that will make the documentation easier to understand for the beginner.
