I will file this as a separate tracker

- IE8 is causing problems with secure quizzes with limited number of questions available per page as described below:
IE 8 is requesting "allow access to the clipboard" when a student attempts to take a secure exam that limits the number of questions per page.
I've tested this in Explorer 8 - and it does prompt for access to clipboard once the student clicks on "continue" to begin his/her attempt. But if you say "allow access" to the IE8 clipboard prompt, you stay in the quiz. If you don't allow access, you are booted out of the quiz. If you clicked on allow access, take the first page of questions, and then click on "save without submitting" on the quiz - it does boot you back to the first page and doesn't save your answers. If instead you click "next" to access the next page of questions, there is no problem. Then you have to click on "submit all and finish" when done with the exam.
Temporary fix instructions to users:
Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) has a current incompatibility with quizzes delivered in secure mode with a limited number of questions per page on our system.
If you are an IE 8 user, we describe below how you can currently work-around this bug.
1. When you log in to take your quiz- immediately after you click on the "Continue" button to begin, if you are prompted to "Allow access to your clipboard", choose "Allow access".
2. Take the first page of questions on the quiz. When you are ready to go to the next page of questions, click on the "Next" button. Again, choose "Allow access" when you are prompted by Internet Explorer 8 for access to your clipboard.
3. Do this for each page of questions.
4. When you are finished with the last page of questions, click on "Submit all and Finish" and click "ok" to close your quiz attempt.
This will save your work.
Do not at any time during the quiz click on "save without submitting" or you will lose your work and return to the first screen of the quiz or be booted out of the quiz.
