On the Android app I would prefer to see how many I got right (on the first attempt) out of the number I have attempted instead of how many in a row I got right. I think first time pass is a better indicator of understanding than streak.
I completely agree. I think it's sad how much of the recent app changes appear to play to the gaming aspects and not the actual learning aspects.
Not just for the app but also the Web version too. I lost a 178 day streak a few months ago, and lost many smaller streaks after that. It would be a better example of the hard work and dedication a Duolingo user does in Duolingo.
I totally agree with everyone, but the streak is good for motivation sometimes.
They could easily have both - a simple "x/y total correct" beside the streak text would do.
