Bringing up an old topic for two reasons.
1) The text doesn't work with the new forum (minor issue they can fix if they know about it). The :roll: no longer works and the color reference doesn't work either: [color=darkblue:q1gu7nk8]eures[/color:q1gu7nk8]
2) I would like an answer about this question also and a good reference for how to distinguish between:
dein - casual
euer - formal
Here's the lesson link: http://members.rocketlanguages.com/lessons/82#lessonquiz
In the quiz are two questions:
Fill in the gaps with the correct possessive adjective: Wie ist... Kurs (m)? (your/casual)
- euer <= accepted answer (but the question says casual)
Fill in the gaps with the correct possessive adjective: "Ich mag...Haus (n)" (your/casual)
- dein <= accepted answer
Link to Karen's other question where she may have found an answer but there is no confirmation: http://members.rocketlanguages.com/members/forum/german-grammar/grammar-lesson-7-2-question
Here is the best possessive pronouns table I have found but it doesn't make the same distinction as Rocket Languages about ihr/Ihr.
Rocket Languages splits their dein/euer up into two separate pages.
- dein - your - http://members.rocketlanguages.com/lessons/81
- euer - your - http://members.rocketlanguages.com/lessons/82
Any tips/help with this question would be appreciated.
Please include references if possible.

Wie ist euer Kurs (m)? (your/casual) is correct. What is missing for clarification here is that your 'euer' serves mostly as plural casual form.
I am asking around in the forum: "Wie ist euer Deutsch?"
I will let the customer support know to ad into the lesson that 'euer'=your can stand for formal and singular or informal and plural.
