I can definitely see the thinking behind your response as cheating is certainly no way to learn.
However, I think there is definitely a need to have the ability to have a quiz setting where you can fail and then be able to review what you got wrong (with detailed feedback to promote understanding), and then be able to re-attempt the quiz. For instance, in our LMS you cannot attempt Module 2 without passing Quiz 1, so therefore it gets a bit tricky if a user can't review what they got wrong in order to allow for multiple attempts.
As you have said the only way to get detailed feedback from failing a Quiz is to set the attempts to 'just one'. This means we have to chose between giving the user the ability to attempt a quiz multiple times (a necessity) or to give detailed feedback.
Your thinking outlined below is certainly correct for what I would call an Exam (or a final test of competency), but not for what I would call a Quiz which we use not only as a test of knowledge, but also as an opportunity to extend learning through detailed feedback per each response.
I think iSpring should give developers the flexibility to make their own decision whether to give a student who fails a quiz/exam detailed feedback/review or not, depending on the learning environment. I know that for us it would help make our courses less confusing.
