Correct multiple choice answers marked as incorrect when done with practice

When doing the Strengthen Skills practice (I've just noticed it in timed practice so far), I notice that multiple choice questions with more than one correct answer are marked as incorrect in the lesson review even though I answered them correctly during the practice. It doesn't seem to happen all the time, but it happens more often than not.

Hi SeanCaruso1,

it's unfortunately a known bug that appeared around 6 months ago.
You can see here the comment by lauren.eliza.le (Duo staff member) saying they are on it.
However, I suggest you fill a "Bug Report" form (with as much details as you can, cf. text in this form), those forms being read by staff. While they will not answer to it (well, up to some exceptions probably ;) ), because they can't answer to each one, they nevertheless use them (among other criterias) to prioritize their list of bugs to be fixed according to the number of Bug Report forms received for each bug.

Ah, sorry - I hadn't seen that when checking if someone else reported it already. Thanks for the very quick response!

Same issue, but I can't continue with my progress until that sentence is marked as correct. Is there a way around this?

It has to be another issue since the one I described above doesn't prevent from validating a lesson (since the system count it as correct so the progress bar... progress).
Thus, it has to be something else:

  • do you select all correct answers when answering those multiple choice questions?
  • Would you have details about your case (what is the exact sentence and the exact three possibilities?

You helped me right there... ALL correct answers needed to be marked. I was doing the lesson late at night and hadn't noticed that was the requirement. All sorted. Thank you!
