accents matter?

Does anyone know if you take the Spanish progress quizzes (you can buy with lingots) if they count your answers wrong if you do not use the accents?

I am fairly certain that they are not marked wrong if you miss an accent.

I don't think it counts against you if you leave off accents. It's been awhile since I took the quiz. The last time I scored a 5.0/5.0 and I am certain that I would not have been using accents 100% accurately. However, I think you will still receive the pop-up that reminds you to pay attention to the accents. Good luck on your quiz!

The progress quizzes do not show whether or not your answer is correct nor do they show pop up reminders about accents. They give your score out of 5.0 at the end. That's why I was asking.....thanks Grandmumm.... it sounds like you know what quiz I'm talking about and if you were able to score 5 out of 5 without accents, that tells me that they don't count against you.
