Please show Level of User

Love Duolingo! I reward my students for achieving levels. I did this before DuoLingo for Schools came around and I'm really happy about DuoLingo for Schools, but there is still no quick or easy way to see a user's level.
As in the past, I have to individually click on a student in my leaderboard to open their profile and then see their level. Then I have to return to my home page and click on the next student, etc.
In DuoLingo for schools even this workaround is not available. I can see a list of their XP and Skills, but not levels. And clicking on a student does not bring me anywhere to see their level, either.
Please DuoLingo, can you make a user's level readily available and visible? Thank you!

I agree 100%. I have this same problem. Duolingo for Schools has so much potential, but is not useful to me without the students' levels. Adding that one feature would be an enormous help to me as a teacher.

Hi! I'm interested to know, why is it only useful with levels? What do you think it shows you that other information (such as course progress or total XP) wouldn't? Levels are based on XP.

Hi ViviSaurus, sorry, not sure I understand your question, but levels are great determiners of students's progress - the same reason DuoLingo lets its users know their level is the reason I do and use it for rewarding them. The XP and the course progress are interesting and contributors to level, but level says all I need to follow and promote their progress in a quick and user-friendly way. (However, until accessing their level is easy, I shouldn't say that it is user-friendly! :)

My students do Duolingo for bonus points. Each level is worth a specific number of points. Each quarter, I give my students bonus points for levels completed during that quarter. I suppose I could use XPs as the basis, but I would prefer to use levels instead. It would make grading quicker, and the students can easily see which level they are on.
