TAO3.2 review functionality is broken if test taker input contains double quotes

edited June 2019 in Peer Support

As the title says, and as this other thread i created in the developer sub forum point towards, there is some serious bugs in TAO 3.2.

If a test-taker inputs a doublequote into ANY freetext interaction, the review functionality stops working.

All is fine in 3.3, but as I understand it, this version is still not stable?


  • Steps to reproduce:

    • Create a new test with an "Extended Text Interaction".
    • Assign a test taker
    • Take the test, input something containing doublequotes in the interaction
    • Go to taoOutcomeUi (results tab)
    • Review/preview the item
    • Item is empty.

    I admit this isn't a huge problem for Extended Text Interaction as the text is pretty readable from the main result page, but for other interactions this is not really cool.

    It seems like state is passed along in the following URL when initiating the preview:

    The HTML returned by this request then contains the base64 encoded version of this:

    But escape characters \ are now missing...

  • ejth there are a few more things we're wrapping up on 3.3 but will be releasing shortly.
