I'm having trouble finding the Benchmark Tests that I've heard people mention. How do I get to them?

Thanks for your question!
In the 2021 Edition version of the site, you can get to the Benchmark tests by clicking on your avatar in the upper right-hand corner and selecting "Tools" from the dropdown list. Then, choose "Benchmark" from the available tools.
In the old version of the site, you can find the Benchmark tests by clicking "My Tools" in the left-hand navigation panel and then selecting "My Benchmark" from the tools (either in the left-hand navigation panel or in the My Tools page).
Do let me know if you have any more questions!

Thank you very much for your response! One more question - do I have to be able to pass the Benchmark for Level 2 in order to go on to Level 3?

Indeed, as TravisB13 says, you don't have to pass the test in order to access higher lessons or levels - you can move around through the courses in whatever way works best for you.
The Benchmark tool is just to help you see what level of Spanish you're currently at. If you retake the test periodically, you can see how you're improving!
