When you plug it in, Google will show you if you validate or not. If you do not, you will need to click to see each type of schema and the errors for each. I believe this is instead of Google showing you all the errors for all the various schemas you have on a single page all at once. Now you need to click into each one by using the arrows to see the errors specific to that schema.

John Mueller of Google confirmed on Google+ this is new.
