IMPORTANT: Candidate feedback is not supported in HTML tests. Feedback added to items in HTML subjects can be viewed as part of summary feedback. For more information, read Adding candidate feedback to items and Viewing summary feedback in the test driver.

Candidates can access feedback during a test if an item author has added it. Candidate feedback can help candidates during low-stakes and formative assessments.

This article explains how to access feedback during a test as a candidate, including the differences between General and Correct/Incorrect feedback, and how to hide candidate feedback. For information about adding candidate feedback to items as an item author, read Adding candidate feedback to items.
