Please consider an update that gives us the ability to provide a sentence or short paragraph explaining the correct answer when a student gets it wrong!!! ... VERY IMPORTANT!!
This is available in Sensei 1.6 – http://www.woothemes.com/2014/06/take-learning-next-level-sensei-1-6/

There needs to be feedback during quizz taking—my students have to get a perfect score before proceeding to the next lesson, now, let's say on a 50 question quiz, they miss a single question. If they receive no feedback from the test form (some visual indication telling them which question(s) they have gotten wrong), they will have to spend a very long and agonizingly tedious time rethinking every question in the quiz. This happened to me when I was giving my quiz a test run. It's a game breaker for me—and very frustrating from a UX standpoint.
My recommendation is pretty simple. When a quiz is filled out and submitted, and there are questions missed, have each of the questions that was missed marked with a dynamically generated CSS rule (so developers can alter it's appearance), and/or store the values and have sensei echo out a test report—a page showing all the questions, with some sort of feedback telling test-takers which questions they missed. This feedback can be a paragraph, or an image, or a change in CSS styling to alter the appearance. The feedback is absolutely critical, since students have no clues about what they need to study, which completely defeats the purpose of having quizzes to begin with—to gauge what the students know and don't know.
Another extremely helpful aspect to making this update is that it allows test-makers to debug their own tests. I have made several tests in Sensei already, and have input the wrong answer into "correct answer" field in the quiz editor. This drove me bonkers when testing my quiz, since I had the answer keys, and KNEW I was inputting the correct answers. This frustration could have easily been mitigated by having some sort of feedback which I could check against my answer key.
I hope this is helpful, and I hope you make this update, because I love the plugin and plan o use it extensively in the future!

This is a feature that I have been really wanting.
It drives me crazy to take an online test and only get things marked right or wrong. What I want is for a student to be able to submit the quiz/test and then underneath each question have an explanation available for the student to read. This would allow for the teacher to give an explanation why the correct answer is correct and why the wrong answers are incorrect.
A simple example of the minimum ability that I would like can be found here: http://quizzes.osteopathicmedstudent.com/quizzes/bacteriology-quizzes/gastrointestinall-microbiology-quiz/ (Just click random answers and submit that 4 question quiz and you will see that green explanation boxes appear after each question.)
I would love to have it be an automatic thing that appears once a student submits a test.
This is a really important feature that all my students have requested. At the moment we have to hack around this and include a link to the answers.
Please do and i will buy the Sensei!
