How to get <TD> title attribute to read array element?

I am trying to get my dynamically created HTML table to display text (contained within an array) on hover of a given cell, using the title attribute, but it will not read the contents of the array and instead reads the array name as a string.

Here is the table generating code and have attempted to add titles to cells of 2 columns currently:

var result = "<table id='dataEditTableid' class='stripe' border=1><thead><tr><th><b>Name</b></th><th><b>7.1</b></th><th><b>7.2</b></th><th><b>7.3</b></th><th><b>7.4</b></th><th><b>7.5</b></th><th><b>7.6</b></th><th><b>8.1</b></th><th><b>8.2</b></th><th><b>8.3</b></th><th><b>8.4</b></th><th><b>8.5</b></th><th><b>8.6</b></th><th><b>9.1</b></th><th><b>9.2</b></th><th><b>9.3</b></th><th><b>9.4</b></th><th><b>9.5</b></th><th><b>9.6</b></th></tr></thead>";
    result += "<tbody>";
    
    for (var i=0; i < studentsList.length; i++) {
        result += "<tr>";
        result += "<td>"+studentsList[i][0]+"</td>";
        result += "<td title = studentsList[i][3] style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][3])+";' id=" + i+3 + "></td>";
        result += "<td title = studentsList[i][4] style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][4])+";' id=" + i+4 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][5])+";' id=" + i+5 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][6])+";' id=" + i+6 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][7])+";' id=" + i+7 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][8])+";' id=" + i+8 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][9])+";' id=" + i+9 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][10])+";' id=" + i+10 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][11])+";' id=" + i+11 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][12])+";' id=" + i+12 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][13])+";' id=" + i+13 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][14])+";' id=" + i+14 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][15])+";' id=" + i+15 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][16])+";' id=" + i+16 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][17])+";' id=" + i+17 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][18])+";' id=" + i+18 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][19])+";' id=" + i+19 + "></td>";
        result += "<td style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][20])+";' id=" + i+20 + "></td>";
        result += "</tr>";
    }

    
    result += "</tbody></table>";
    
    dataTable.innerHTML = result;

What have I done wrong?

     result += "<td title='"+ studentsList[i][4] +"' style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][4])+";' id=" + i+4 + "></td>";
    

    you've messed quotations, please replace this with the older ones

    also, no need to repeat stuff just add another for loop inside the for:

    for (var i = 0; i < studentsList.length; i++) {
      result += "<tr>";
      result += "<td>" + studentsList[i][0] + "</td>";
      result += "<td title='"+ studentsList[i][3] +"' style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][3])+";' id=" + i+3 + "></td>";
      result += "<td title='"+ studentsList[i][4] +"' style='background-color: "+redBlue(studentsList[i][4])+";' id=" + i+4 + "></td>";
      for (var j = 4; j = < 20; i++) {
        result += "<td style='background-color: " + redBlue(studentsList[i][j]) + ";' id=" + i + j + "></td>";
      }
      result += "</tr>";
    }
