Hey! Are you at W&M? I am in Newport News!
I was just typing a short list of MOODLE comparisons I try to do..not well organized but you will get the gist:
1. Confirm individual has appropriate roles and or permissions.
Roles individual may need at minimum: Instructor role, Shared Question creator (at a higher category if he/she needs to see more questions than what are available in his or her course).
Have an administrator log in as that person to see if what the individual is seeing, changes. If an administrator sees the same exact thing (on a different computer) as the individual, then you know that it may not be the computer or browser (never 100% but a good current guess). If the administrator sees something different under changed role (and on a separate computer), you can focus on the computer or browser.
Have the individual try a different computer and a different browser. How does this affect what he or she sees?
2. If you believe you have confirmed his or her role is appropriate. Focus on computer and or browser (you mention server as well, think about it..but I say it may be something more simple first). Do simple comparisons like browser type and version #. Also go into the settings and confirm settings match etc? Again, if the person can see something different on a different computer or browser...then you can focus on the one you seem to be targeting.
Your visual does help... I am now thinking in a different direction. Thanks for sharing.
Review this link. See if you can relate to this person who posted this:
I have to go off for an appt that will be a few hours.. wont be back until after 1pm my time (its 7am now). But I will do some more research.
it does not hurt to do the things I mentioned, but I am thinking that there may be something else going on after seeing your lack of question types at all...

I do not think this is a complete answer, but it shows that someone has had similar.
I would still confirm all the basics:
is it happening on just one computer or anywhere that person logs in?
Have you tried a different browser and computers with that person? What are the results? Same or different?
Is it happening to others? (if it is not, this kind of negates the question thing above..but still...says hey, there have been some similar problems)
Do you host your own site or do you pay a host? (if you pay a company to host, they may be able to help)?
If you had to answer those questions above...what are your answers right now?
We host our own moodle. I am Network Manager but it is administered by the IT co-ordinator and I have little or nothing to do with it. The migration to 2.2 was undertaken by a well-respected enterprise software technical architect - in his spare time -and this is the first problem that has appeared even though the migration was several months ago

Then I would focus on a MOODLE setting or a MOODLE flaw.
If you go to your site administration, there is a little search box. I use it all the time Put in question types ... and it will bring you to Manage Question Types.
See if you notice anything abnormal (If you have not already checked that)...
Keep in mind that moodle posting...when looking too.
Another thing to do is to make sure someone did not accidentally changed a setting under roles and permissions and go thru those lists and make sure something is not related.
It does indeed bring me to Manage Question Types...which is blank...
Mine has a long list of types and how often being used etc.
I would definitely start focusing on the posting from moodle.org
Maybe tag a comment onto it and see if anyone takes a bite. Tim Hunt is usually pretty good at responding to Quiz and Question stuff.
If I enable debugging and then try again I get an "internal server error - unable to display webpage"
Thanks for your help

Would it be a good idea to create a question type and see if that works? How would I do that?
1)Were you migrated directly from 1.9 to 2.2? There are warnings in the migration notes about the quiz question engine changing and to be aware of this - Upgrading to Moodle 2.1 - MoodleDocs
2) As mentioned on the Moodle,org forum, have you tried with a different theme to make sure it's not your theme?
3) Can you go to Site administration>Plugins>Question types>Manage question types and do a screenshot of the available question types -I will tell you if there are non-standard ones there that might be conflicting with your 2.2 install.
