      Description

      If the instructor creates a numeric response question with a comma in the answer:

      1,000 + 1,500 = {2,500}

      the comma displays in the answer after the instructor saves the question.

      When the student answers the question as 2,500 the comma changes into a decimal point. If you watch very closely, you can see it change on the page.

      When the quiz is submitted, the student's answer is shown as 2.500 (and marked correct) while the answer key shows 2,500.

      If the instructor can enter a comma for the answer, then the student should be able to also.

      If the student is not able to enter a comma, then the instructor shouldn't be able to either for the answer.

      In either case, the instructor's answer and the student's answer should match.

      Looking at the html in the feedback page, I see:

      <span style="text-decoration: underline">2.500</span>
