Why not 'wij' instead of 'we'?

Depends a bit on what kind of exercise you get here... the voice clearly (for me as a native at least ;)) says "we" instead of "wij" so if you have to type what you hear it should be "we". If you have to translate from English to Dutch you should be allowed to use both we/wij

Done would imply you finished the experiment. Tried does not. Geprobeerd is translated as tried.

You could say "We've done the experiment", but the connotation is different than "We did the experiment".
