      Description

      Quizzes in adaptive mode should ignore invalid answers to a question (e.g., non-numerical answers to numerical questions) without applying a penalty.

      This currently works with numerical questions in interactive mode, but fails with numerical questions in adaptive mode. (Other combinations not yet tested.)
