      Create a Cloze question containing either a numerical or shortanswer subquestion (or possibly both)

      A simple example question text would be

      Enter zero: {1:NUMERICAL:=0:0}

      Test these three possible responses (using question preview, or by adding to a quiz)

      1. Leave the input blank - should be reported as not answered.

      (The feedback for the subquestion is in a tooltip, so move your mouse over the input box.)

      2. Get the question right (type in 0) - should be reported as correct.

      3. Get the question wrong (type in 123) - should be reported as incorrect.

    Description

      When creating a cloze type questions where the correct answer value is zero, students will often leave the answer field blank.

      When reviewing answers in the gradebook or question review interface, this results in the student and instructor visually seeing the question as being answered correctly with a green checkmark displayed, but in the gradebook it only records partial points for the question and deducts the null responses from the total score.

      I've tested this by entering the zeros and not entering the zeros. The question that I entered zeros recieved full points while the same answers without the zeros only recieved partial points.
