First Checkpoint in Spanish Course- Is it not working?

In the first Checkpoint, there doesn't seem to be any progress on the green bar as you answer the questions. It just makes a sound. Is that supposed to be happening? Am I just getting them wrong?

ha. I noticed that on the last checkpoint, at the end of the page. There was a recent update that added those obligatory testing checkpoints. There's probably a thread about it, or an explanation on the FAQ, but I'm not sure because I never looked for one. I did notice, when I lost my owl and had to get it back (for the third time!) that there is now a mandatory test at the end. For me, only the test at the end of the course was highlighted, but I guess if you have fewer XP maybe others will be highlighted as well. When I took the test I noticed that there was no feedback during the test. I don't think it means that you're incorrect. Not necessarily. At the end I just got a "you passed, congrats" message. I never knew how many I got right, but apparently I got enough right to pass. Later, I realized I could have clicked on the Review button to see my responses and the correct answer. Be sure to click on Review at the end to go over your answers to see what you missed. (I didn't do that and now the opportunity is gone forever.)

Thanks! I started doing it several times, but I thought it wasn't working so I quit. Will try it again today.
