      I don't see any way to view their answers to the actual questions, only a numeric score. I want to see the actual results, not just a summary. Am I missing something?

      If a candidate got a score of "100", that means they answered "strongly agree" to all the questions. For other scores, though, you're right. We haven't posted the individual answers of each candidate, so it's impossible to know which specific questions they got a lower score on.

      Which candidates' answers do you want?

      All of them, or at least all the ones who got something other than 100 – some questions are more important than others, and some would lead me to want to know more from the candidate.
