      Description

      This has been reported before in: MDL-5480

      However, the 'bug' does not appear to have been fixed.

      The situation: A quiz with MC and Essay type questions has been set up so that "Each attempt builds on the last" = yes

      scenario 1)
      When a student does this quiz and clicks on 'Save without submitting", logs out, and then comes back to continue their attempt, the choices they made in the MC questions and the text they wrote in the essay question is still there. This is GOOD.

      scenario 2)
      When a student does this quiz and clicks on 'Submit", the essay is graded by the teacher, and then attempts the quiz for the second time, the choices they made in the MC questions and the text they wrote in the essay question is still there. This is GOOD.

      scenario 3)
      However, when a student does this same quiz and clicks on 'Submit", and then attempts the quiz for the second time before the teacher has graded the first attempt, the choices they made in the MC questions remain, BUT the text they wrote in the essay question is deleted. This is a PROBLEM.
