What has happened to Individual Answer Feedback?

Hi. In your Help Guide for feedback for MC questions you state - 

In addition to general feedback, students will see all feedback comments relevant to their answer choices.

Is this not a little misleading for as far as I can tell, there are only two types of feedback - one for the correct answer and one for all wrong answers? 


Was there a reason for not continuing with the individual answer feedback comments that you had in the previous quiz design or am I missing something/have not selected an option?


Whilst I am really pleased that you have developed partial credit via the Vary Points by Answer feature, I think you have taken a step back by not keeping individualised feedback. I will now have to put feedback for each answer in the one wrong answer box which is not a great work around and presumably not a great user experience for the students?


I use quizzes a lot in my courses to test student misconception and like to have a range of answers that challenges students. In the previous quiz version I could not give partial credit only answer by answer feedback which was frustrating.


In the new quiz version I cannot understand why you have removed this feature as it makes a huge contribution to developing an effective online learning tool!


Please tell me that this is going to be brought back in future iterations!
