érais with an accent over the e

Checked two dictionaries and they show accent over the e? Optional? Changed rule? Checked another dictionary no accent. Regional?

There isn't an accent over the e of the vosotros conjugation, only the nosotros conjugation.

Hola Rosemary

No, there is no accent on the e for erais. It's only two syllables e/rais and following the general rules for accentuation it doesn't take an accent as the last syllable ends in -s

Hola. In the lesson, the quiz tells me I got it nearly right because I didn't select eran with the accent. But the lesson says there should only be an accent over éramos. So I don't get what's wrong.

Hola Brittany

I checked your results for that test. Your answer to this question was "éran" with the accent, and the system is telling you that you didn't get it completely right as the correct answer is "eran" without the accent. I hope this clarified it.
