Hi! I'm having a great time using Duolingo Spanish with two of my classes as a supplement to my curriculum. I'm a little frustrated, though, with what seem to be glitches now and then - or maybe just something I'm not understanding about how it works? 1. Sometimes on my dashboard, a skill is not colored in, but when I click on the circle it says "5/5" as if the student has finished all of the lessons (which they claim they have). 2. I've had two students just this week who's app on the phone said they had completed 4/5 Food lessons, even though it said on my dashboard 5/5. They did Lesson 5 over and over but it wouldn't let them move on.
Thank you for any help you can give!
I just had two more students who had completed Food lesson #5 several times (I even did it for them once on their phones) but it was still showing 4/5 and would not unlock the next skills. The only way they could go on was to Test Out.
Also - since I set up my classroom accounts, I have unchecked "Enable all words", but "beer" continues to show up regularly.
Can you please ask them to take a screenshot if that ever happens? Here is how: https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204856044 This would really help us try to figure it out. You can post it here or send it to email@example.com — Thank you!
I have had this issue for more than a year now with my students. It usually only happens on the app version. This has happened particularly on the lesson with Food, also, where it keeps the students at 5/6 even when they re-do lesson 6. It will not allow them into the next level. My husband thought it could be a proxy server issue, since I have never had this happen to me, and as a teacher, I am on a different proxy server. One work around is to have the students re-do the lesson on the web version: then the lesson can be completed. My impression is that they could do lesson 6 a thousand times on the app and it would still revert to the starting position of 5/6. A few times I have even seen a previously recorded result subtracted! 5/6 became 4/6 after completing lesson 6! It is very de motivating in the classroom!
