      Create an "Embedded answers (Cloze)" question using Example 2 from http://docs.moodle.org/25/en/Cloze#Example_2.
      Warning: using copy/paste can introduce unwanted tags like <pre> so be sure you paste the text only in the cloze question.
      Preview the question choosing "Adaptive mode" for the "How questions behave" setting.
      Enter responses in all the sub-parts of the question and click the "Check" button.
      Verify that all responses except horizontal and vertical multichoice's ones are colored (when I say colored, I mean not only the cross/check mark but the enter field or select menu itself) accordingly to their status (red for incorrect, yellow for partially correct and green for correct). Change some of your responses and click "Ckeck" verify that colors are updated. Click on "Submit all and finish" and verify that there is no change in responses coloring.

      Description

      Mode = adaptive mode
      Question text=

      Q01.- {1:SHORTANSWER:=correct answer}
       
      Q02.- {1:SHORTANSWER:=correct answer}
       
      Q03.- {1:SHORTANSWER:=correct answer}
       
      Q04.- {1:SHORTANSWER:=correct answer~%50%half correct answer}

      Screenshot #1 compares the 1.9 and 2.1 displays of a Cloze question, in adaptive mode, when Submit page (1.9) or Check (2.1) button is clicked.

      • the 1.9 version clearly shows by using colors and icons which sub-questions were correctly, incorrectly or partially correctly answered and - by not using any coloring or icons - the sub-question which was left un-answered. Hovering over the questions does not provide any info.
      • 2.1, on the other hand, does not display such information ; the only info available is obtained by hovering over the sub-questions, which is not so immediately visible to the student.

      Screenshot #2 compares the 1.9 and 2.1 displays of a Cloze question, in adaptive mode, when Submit all and finish button is clicked.

      • the 1.9 version uses colors and ticks to display information about the correctness of the answers. Note that Q03 is left white, since it was un-answered, which is OK. HOvering over the sub-question answer boxes provides info re the "correct answer".
      • the 2.1 version also displays colors and ticks. But it wrongly displays Q03 in red; that un-answered sub-question should be displayed in white. [BUG]
        Hovering over the sub-questions answer boxes provides interesting information. Unfortunately, Q02 tooltip shows "Not answered" where it should be "Incorrect". [BUG]

      Bugs to be fixed are marked [BUG] in above Description text.

      Improvements requested:

      • When checking his answers, in 2.1 the student should see the correctness/incorrectness of his answers clearly marked (color and icon) as it was in 1.9. (Screenshot #1) and as it is when Submitting all in 2.1 (Screenshot #2). This is quite indispensable in Adaptive mode, especially for Cloze questions containing a large number of SA sub-questions.
      • When hovering over the textbox of a sub-question that has not yet been answered, no "Mark 0 out of 1" should be displayed.
