      Description

      It affects 11.3 and even back to Sakai 10.

      To reproduce:
      1 Create a test with a multiple choice question type. Allow for Partial credit, and choose Randomize answers .

      2. Take the test as a student. The display to the student moves the correct answer AND it's letter selection to a random spot.

      See enclosed image "randomizedMCpartial.png"

      Note: this does not happen with Radomized answers if Partial credit is not selected.

      Issue: If you create a Multiple Choice, Single Selection question in a quiz and select the options Partial Credit AND Randomize Answers, when each student takes the quiz, they SHOULD see a different order of answer options. For example, if the instructor selects Option A as the correct answer, a student might see the answer options as follows:

      A. Option C
      B. Option A
      C. Option D
      D. Option B

      INSTEAD they're seeing the letters always corresponding to their same answers the instructor entered in the authoring page, but listed out of order:

      A. Option A
      C. Option C
      D. Option D
      B. Option B

      Screen shots from two students taking the same quiz (option letters correspond to the way the instructor saw them on authoring screen):

      To reproduce:

      1. In a site with at least two students, create a quiz with a Multiple Choice question.
      2. On the question authoring page, select the following:
        • Single Correct (default)
        • Enable Partial Credit
        • Enter text in all 4 answer options (know which letter corresponds to which answer).
        • Select a correct answer, and enter a percentage of points to award for at least one incorrect answer option.
        • Under Randomize Answers, choose Yes.
      3. Publish the quiz.
      4. Take it as two students and note the order of answer options and letters each time.
