[Phptest-users] points possible reporting differences

The number of points possible reported reported for tests which display questions
one at a time is different from that reported for tests which display all questions at once.

For tests displaying questions one at a time, the results table shows points possible equal to the **number of
questions on the test**. The detailed answer table shows Left Blank for unanswered questions.

For tests displaying all questions at once, the results table shows points possible equal to the **number of
questions explicitly answered**. The detailed answer table does not display anything for unanswered

It appears that for a one question at a time test, test.php sets the default answer to each question to
"Leave Blank" before redirecting to question.php, but there doesn't seem to be a similar default
setting for all at once tests.

Wouldn't you want points possible to be the same regardless of how many questions are displayed?

Has anyone else dealt with this?
