Progress quiz

Would really like to see the answers that I got wrong to understand what I missed. I can't tell if I forgot an accent mark, if I made a typo, missed a tense, or just flat out got it wrong!

Aren't typos (Duo consider missing accents as typos) accepted also in progress quiz?

I believe that if your accent is incorrect, it is marked as completely wrong. There is no partial credit. You cannot tell what was wrong. Did you put an extra "s", or leave off an "e"? No way to tell. It would help the learning if you could SEE what is missed.

I thought the quizz was as lenient as the course (and the validation of the lessons) which counts as typo (and so accept as correct the answer) any missing/wrong accent. They also accept missing/extra/wrong letter, as long as this typo does not result in a word that also exist in the language.

Yes, it would be helpful to know what I had right and wrong! It should be easy enough to show after the quiz is complete...

But if the questions/answers become available to everyone the test will no longer have any validity. It is not a teaching tool, it is for evaluation, just like taking the GRE, SAT, ACT

I see your point. My progress just seems to be going in the wrong direction and I want to understand why. A bit frustrating, but I just keep going. I must be learning something even if the Progress Quizzes aren't showing it.
