New format and 'peeking'

Does 'peeking' (mousing over a word to see it's definition) still work as described by Luis in this post https://www.duolingo.com/comment/612986?

"When you peek, you send a signal to our system letting it know that you didn't know this word very well. The system then updates it's belief about how well you know it and will try to repeat it more often for you."

Since we no longer get the 'peeking' notification, I was wondering if something had changed.

Hi wazzie,

I'm assuming it does work like that. I haven't heard anything to the contrary yet. :)

I was assuming it too, but I would like confirmation.

I didn't know peeking did that. I look at words all the time. Sometimes it is just to be sure, others it is because I didn't know it, then there are times when I want to make sure I'm using the exact word and not a synonym that will be marked wrong.
