Why doesn't Treehouse give you the answers to missed questions after you pass a quiz?

It would be nice to know what I don't know before moving on...

I'm guessing that since the goal is to 'know it' rather than just being able to recite something, they'd prefer you to rewatch or brush up on the material rather than just saying "nope, that's wrong.. but here's the right answer!". I like it actually. It makes you have to rewatch the material and maybe pay closer attention this time. Or perhaps it was our misunderstanding of the question that hurt us because we didn't read it clearly enough or follow the precise instructions in the question/task so by not telling us the answer we must force ourselves to reevaluate the question and see if there was anything we misinterpreted.

Considering the nature of this business, it's in our best interest to be able to follow instructions to a T and, when we have to, 'find' the answer out there. So I dig their method of keeping tight lipped on the answers you get wrong.
