    Description

      Users taking a quiz, that click "Finish Attempt" instead of the "Next" button may not have their answers saved. We have seen the problem occur in Chrome, Safari, and Respondus LockDown Browser in Windows and Mac OSes. It appears to be browser specific, but not consistent. An answer may not be saved 4 times in a row and then saved on the 5th attempt. It has occurred with multiple question types, and when displaying all questions on a page or a single question per page.
