The arrows do not correspond to a level of study. The numeral on the leftmost side refers to the number of responses which have been posted to any given comment. If you think that a reply has been great you 'upvote' it or alternatively 'downvote' it. I realise that these 'verbs' are not linguistically correct but they are commonly used by the Duo community. I suppose it's comparable to 'Like us on Facebook.' Duo is undoubtedly the best language learning resource available.
