Spanish progress test

I just finished the Spanish progress test for the first time and I did not do well. I will try to review more before I retake the quiz. I am frustrated because the test only gave me a score but did not let me see which questions I got wrong. Why? I'm not sure how to improve if I don't know for sure what I missed.

Someone else posted the very same complaint earlier today, and it's appeared several times in the past. I think that Duolingo wants the quiz score to mean something objective, something that can't be "finessed" by people who would write the correct answers after seeing them, and then take the quiz again, artificially inflating their score. But you're certainly not alone among users who want to learn from their mistakes: there are a lot of us!

The test is for evaluation, not instruction. If the answers were made available the test would lose validity. It is like taking the ACT, SAT, GRE, and such.
