Hi! I take a monthly progress quiz in Swedish, and scored a little lower than I had hoped, but then took two CEFR tests (one listening, one writing/reading) and was pleased when I had levelled up in CEFR (now B2, but that's not the point). Anyway, does Duolingo take into account the questions you got wrong, and weaken the skills they are associated to? For instance if I was forgetting words that were in Politics, would it make me strengthen Politics earlier than if I hadn't taken the test?

I'm not sure if my question makes much sense, but, hopefully, it does. Thanks!

I honestly don't know whether your answers in these progress quizzes influence the skill algorithm positively or negatively. Your question makes sense, but I also don't know whether anybody could answer this question without guessing (except for staff, but they won't answer here) ;-)
