I'm analyzing Duolingo to replace current curriculum...can I print detail trees of each level?

I would like to be able to generate quizzes and test for each tree even thought students are ahead of others, I could generate assessment scores equal to expectations for their level.

Great idea. Do you mean you'd like to be able to print copies of the vocabulary words in trees or that you would like Duolingo to automatically generate quizzes for, for example, each unit? Please describe your ideal scenario so we can better understand what you think is missing.

As a teacher, using a print curriculum we have vocab lists, quizzes and tests for each chapter...these assessments generate the grades I report....If we were to use Duolingo exclusively as our curriculum rather than the existing scope and sequences, how would we be able to generate equivalent lists, quizzes and tests?

The vocabulary list is already available on your classroom's sidebar (under "course content"), which you could use to create tests and quizzes. Each skill contains a "test out" option, which allows students to try finishing a skill without dictionary hints. Does your existing system give you ready-made quizzes? Is that what you would like to see?

I would VERY much like if if Duolingo could automatically generate quizzes for each unit. I would also very much like to know if there is a "scope and sequence" listing anywhere that corresponds to each "skill" mastered other than just a vocabulary list and "tips and hints" listing.

Additionally, I would like to know if the trees/levels are matched with the COE A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2 levels...if so how would I know when A1 becomes A2 and so on.

Thanks!

The trees are not formally matched with those levels at the moment.

Is it a possibility for the future?

It is of course a possibility, as we have super talented scientists and language learning experts who work hard on improving our system. However, you should keep in mind that to align the courses with a separate, existing system is not an easy task, and we have many languages to address, so you can imagine that to successfully do something like that would require serious in-depth research and testing; we base everything on data and significant scientific results. Meanwhile, Duolingo is already proven effective, and you can use it knowing it will improve your students' language skills which will likely lead to better test results. :]
