Why am I failing user story 13 on Survey Form

I usually post in project feedback, but help seems an appropriate place to put this post as it is a technical hurdle not feedback for style or the way I code.

I was passing this user story through most of the project and there was one time when the unit tester was bugging out but then somehow either fixed itself or someone patched it while I was doing the project. I want to make sure this isn’t a validation problem with the unit tester before I spend more time with it.

I’m not using JS or any frameworks as the user story page recommends against it to make sure I focus on CSS/HTML.

I have some CSS and flexbox stuff to do with the survey form but my call for help is about why User Story 13 is failing.

It says group radio choices by name attribute, they are tied together with a name attribute.

Is it the spelling of your input name? Sometimes it’s spelled employementStatus and sometimes employmentStatus.

@thomkhakai Thanks bud thats exactly what it is.

Also depending on the browser phone/laptop it was acting funny last night I fixed some of those I must have missed that one. I try to write plain english verbose names for variables elements and objects but it bites me in bum bum sometimes. I should plug in a spellchecker to Atom.

I was banging my head against the wall about this one as well, it turned out that I had 4 check boxes and no radio buttons, 2 of each are required.

Wow, your form is beautiful! What experience do you have in the real world?

thanks, as far as experience, just self-study a few pet projects and college classes
