      Basic working

      To test this you need a teacher account and a student account. The student account must have a valid mail address so that you can check mails received by the student.
      You also need a backup of a course made before this patch is applied with a lesson activity including at least an essay question and some student attempts to this essay question that have been graded by a teacher, some with a comment and some without any comment.

      • Add a lesson to a course with Use default feedback set to yes in the "Appearance" section of the settings.
      • Add an essay question to the lesson, score = 1, jump to next page.
      • logout
      • Connect as a student and attempt the lesson.
      • once you reach the end of the lesson and see the congratulations message, logout

      • Enter a comment with some HTML formatting and an image using the filepicker
      • Also give a score equal to 1 to the student
      • Save changes
      • On the Grade essays page, click on the "Email graded essays"
      • Verify by going to the student mailbox (sorry there is no other way to do that test currently in the lesson activity ) that the mail content is correct HTML. You should see "Essay prompt:" and the question's text with all HTML formatting, "Your answer:" and the student answer with all HTML formatting, "Grader's comments:" ad the teacher comment with all HTML formatting, "You have received 1 out of 1 for this essay question. Your grade for the lesson has been changed to 100%."

      Page deletion

      Verify that when you delete an essay page in a lesson and this page has some attempts with teacher comments lesson activity, the files embedded in the teacher's comments to essay questions are correctly deleted (I don't think there is another way to verify that than looking into the mdl_files table ?)
