"Let students see the correct answers" (Classic Quizzes) - needs a tweak?

Does the above check-box option need a slight tweak / extension?

As it stands, it's a bit misleading. If unchecked, a student's own incorrect answers are still flagged after taking the quiz. Therefore, they can easily deduce which of their own answers were correct, even if the correct answers for all questions are not identified.

This means that (for example) if a capable student takes the quiz and scores highly, they will be able to confirm the correct answers for questions which they themselves answered correctly, and share this information. 

I'm aware that it's possible to prevent this by un-checking "Let students see their quiz responses", however there might be cases where it would be helpful for students to see their own responses, but not know (yet) which were incorrect.

Could you possibly add a supplementary check-box so that students can see their own answers, but are not told which were incorrect?

Hi Christine, you are right that feedback won't show unless you also select "indicate response as correct/incorrect" if you entered feedback in [2].

But if you enter it in [1] it will show without selecting "indicate response as correct/incorrect."
