What's the point of score in Chess basics?

In Chess basics, under Learn, upon completing a set, you are awarded a score. Do these points account for anything? I didn't see them added or even mentioned anywhere else.

They count different amount of points depending on how good you solve the chess basics. If you are able to do the rook moves for example in less moves, you get more points/better score.

That much is evident. However, there are also 1-3 stars identifying this far more effectively. Points aren't stored anywhere, aren't comparable to anything, and in overall are just meaningless, as far as I can see. At least having a simple "your score/max score" format would give some context and use to points.

Did I make it right? I think so, but I don't understand why I need to add a 30 characters field...
