Summary0000755: 'back'-button shows solution of test
DescriptionAfter failing the cats once and trying it again, you can view the results of the new test when you use the back button of your browser to get back to the results page of the previous test. instead of showing the old results, the page content is updated with the new questions.

steps to reproduce: start new test, answer all questions (ie randomly) and evaluate. then start a new test and use the back button (open it in a new tab) of the browser to view the results.
TagsNo tags attached.

When pressing the “Back” button to get back to the results page, I was asked if I wanted to re-send the POST data. I accepted without thinking much and got presented a results page with 100% correct answers. The system (the main page, too) now shows two tries, the second of which with perfect scores.

I didn't try to reproduce for obvious reasons, but I think the required steps to be:
* Take test, submit
* Wait for results page
* Follow an arbitrary link
* Press “Back” button
* Accept to re-send POST data

(Sorry should the formatting screw up, there is no preview option..)

jcurl from 0000919
While I passed my first test with 88%, I was trying to figure out if there was a way to print the results (the comments given, even if correct) are useful (so I further clicked on some other pages). To get back to the results page, I jumped back some pages (sorry, I don't recall to what exact URL).
What happened, the page was empty (i.e. no questions) and told me I had reached 100%.

This is now recorded as having done the tests twice, whereby I've only done it once. Results confirmed by logging into and also, whereby I see the system believes I really did two tests.

confirming this.
did the test once and failed, did it again and succeded. the other three results are from browsing backwards and forward in the browser. as you can see one test "failed" horribly, but the other two suceeded with 100%

#-- first two are actual tests
pos date number of questions correct
1 2011-11-08 19:08:01 25 72 %
2 2011-11-08 19:28:34 25 92 %
#-- below here are fake tests
3 2011-11-08 19:29:30 25 100 %
4 2011-11-08 19:29:50 25 32 %
5 2011-11-08 19:29:57 25 100 %
