Default Numerical Answers to One Field

Default Numerical Answers to One Field

Numerical answers should always default to one answer field.  I noticed if you do not delete the extra answer fields and leave them blank, the question will except 0 as an answer in addition to the answer that you want.

Did you report this through support, already?  This sounds like it is not functioning with intentional design?

That is who I contacted first.  They told me to post here.  Here is the reply:

Thank you for contacting Canvas Support. I understand you would like the numerical quiz question to default to only one answer being populated rather than the four that currently show. I agree with you that four answers are quite redundant. You're welcome to make a feature request to get your idea heard by following the steps in our guide here. If you have additional questions or run into any other issues, please don't hesitate to reach out as we're always happy to help.  -- -- Jacob Bullard | L1 Technical Support Engineer E: jbullard@instructure.com ref:_00DA0Ibsk._500A0XEcVo:ref

Perfect.  This is why I ask!

I figured you had, but I wanted to make sure!

The part that concerned me in your message was that if you do not fill anything in then 0 defaults as a correct answer.  I just want to make sure that was in your support ticket?
