    • Show questions answered correctly: students see only the questions they answered correctly.
    • Show all questions without user responses: students only see questions for which they did not provide an answer.
    • Show all questions with user responses: students only see questions they answered (correctly or not), along with their answers.
    • Show question answers: students see the correct answers, but only for the questions you have allowed them to see using the other options above.
    • Show question score and out of score: students see how they scored on individual questions.
