      This should be tested in MOODLE_24_STABLE and master branchs only. MOODLE_23_STABLE don't have this problem.

      1. Create a multiple choice question:
        Which one is an animal?
        Choice 1: the cat Grade 100% Feedback: Yes, the cat is an animal.
        Choice 2: the dinosaur Grade 50% Feedback: Yes, but it's an extinct animal.
        Choice 3: the bus Grade 0% Feedback: No way!
      2. Preview question in Adaptive mode.
      3. Select radio button for the dinosaur and click the Check button.
      4. Check that you get this feedback :
        Partially correct / Marks for this submission: 0.5/1.0. This submission attracted a penalty of 0.3.
      5. Now select Adaptive mode (no penalties) and click Start again with these options.
      6. Select radio button for the dinosaur and click the Check button.
      7. Check that you get this feedback :
        Partially correct / Marks for this submission: 0.5/1.0.
        (i.e. feedback no longer displays irrelevant penalty information).
      8. To confirm that things work as expected with the patch, continue and select the correct choice (the cat) and verify that still no penalty information is displayed in Adaptive (no penalties) mode.
