      To replicate the problem, you need to open up a quiz in IE9 that has text fields or dropdowns.
      Before you launch the quiz you'll need to do the following to make sure your browser is not in compatibility mode:

      1. Hit the ALT key once to show the menu at the top of IE9
      2. Click Tools --> Compatibility View Settings
      3. Uncheck the checkbox titled 'Display Intranet sites in compatibility mode'

      Launch the quiz. Text fields and dropdowns should not work when machine is not patched.
      After patch, it should work.

      Do not use the "Full screen pop-up with some JavaScript security" Browser security setting or advise IE 9 users to enable compatibility view while taking quizzes with this setting enabled - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956197

      Description

      If a quiz is set to use "Full screen pop-up with some JavaScript security" Browser security in the quiz settings, students accessing the quiz with the IE9 web browser may not be able to interact with certain form elements using a mouse. Clicking on a select menu does not open it, and clicking on text areas do not engage focus. Tabbing through elements seems to work, and select options can be changed with arrow key navigation.

      This only seems to occur when "Full screen pop-up with some JavaScript security" Browser security has been set for the quiz. When this is not set, the quiz works as expected.

      If you enable "compatibility view" in IE9 the form elements work as expected.
