Blackboard Test Feedback Options
Test feedback options determine the type of results users receive after a test is submitted. The options are set on the Test Options screen in section 6.
You may set up to two rules to show results and feedback. If conflicts in rules occur, the most permissive settings for that user or groups of users is granted. For example, students would receive the greatest number of attempts, longest availability time, and so on.
Each rule has two parts: when the feedback will be displayed, and what feedback will be displayed.

What Options are:
For the first rule, an instructor will typically choose only Scores to display After Submission.
For the second rule, an instructor may choose to allow students to see what answers he/she missed. Choosing Score, Submitted Answers, and Show Incorrect Questions might be what you want to display After Availability End Date.
