Can someone help me to find an error?
Your code so far

function findLongestWord(str) {
  str = str.split(' ');
  var maxLength = 0;
  var indexMaxLength = 0;
  for (var i = 0;i<str.length;i++){
    if(str[i].length>maxLength){
      maxLength=str[i].length;
      indexMaxLength=i;
    }
  }
  return indexMaxLength;
}

findLongestWord("The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog");

You are returning the index of the longest word, but you should return the length of the longest word.
