      Create a shortanswer question with an escaped asterisk

      \*

      as a first 100% grade answer. It should be just asterisk in the correct reponse.

      Go to preview and press "Fill in correct responses". You shoudn't see \ before the * there. Create a test with correct answer displayed and add a question to it. In the "Correct answer is:" section you shoudn't see \ before * too.

      Description

      Shortanswer question class doesn't seems to overload standard get_correct_response method. So it display backslash before asterisk while it should have been stripped since asterisk is a wildcard.

      The logic in qtype_shortanswer_renderer::correct_response also seems wrong. It try to display ANSWER instead of RESPONSE for some reason - e.g. text with special character like asterisk (which could be shown) and escaped asterisk (which is wrong).
