      Description

      Calculated questions exported in Moodle XML format do not set the correct "Correct Answer Shows"

      To reproduce:
      Make a new calculated question.
      Enter any name, question text "

      {x}" and correct answer formula "{x}

      ".
      Export question.

      Expected: <correctanswerlength> tag set to 2 (the default value)
      Actual: <correctanswerlength> tag is set to 1

      Importing the exported XML confirms the problem:
      Import the file you exported above.
      Edit question.
      Expected: "Correct answer shows" will still be 2 (as originally set)
      Actual: "Correct answer shows" is 1

      The value written out seems to depend on "Tolerance Type". It is 1 for geometric and relative regardless of the value set in writing the question. It is 2 for nominal regardless of the value set in writing the question.
