[LON-CAPA-users] wrong entry behaviour with multi part problems

Iīd like to share your ideas about how to solve the problem with a wrong
way how multi part problems are filled in. Arenīt there complaints from
students about lost entries?

Letīs take a problem with three parts. In each part, there is one
problem text and one numerical response. A student enters all his/her
answers in all the three text fields. Then, he/she presses the last of
the answer buttons to submit all three answers. But only the last answer
is graded, the other two are lost.

How can I avoid this behaviour?

I donīt want to split in three problems and I donīt want to put all
parts in only one part either.

I tried with a line (<hr />) after each part to seperate the different
parts, but Iīm not sure if this really helps.

Any suggestions?
