Suggestion: Replace checkpoint passed with a practice this branch option?

What do you think about being able to practice the skills of a particular branch instead of all skills completed always being grouped together for practice?

It could be helpful to people who want to complete the whole tree while focusing their practice time on the first two or three branches. It might also be less daunting for those who are trying to reguild their tree after some time spent away. It seems to me that the first few branches should be focused on more intently even if they show all gold.

I thought you can click on any particular module and then click strengthen up top... then it will give you practice questions from that module alone.

That is correct. That is how you can practice the complete skill at once. I am referring to the groups of ten to twenty skills that you see seperated by a test out button, these are called branches.

I don't think the branches have any thematic or other type of connection with each other, unlike specific skills. And if you are going to practice everything, just go with a general strengthen.

What am I missing?

Thanks for the reply. Good question. I added this answer to the original post.
