Is there a test (paper or in app) that I can give to my students?

Title.

I'm teaching ESL, but my students nearly all come from the same language background (either Korean or Chinese. Always grouped by class so not mixed). I would like to do a quiz with them on their Duo homework, which has been assigned throughout the semester, but am not sure what to test on.

If there isn't one built into Duo, is there any way for me to fully unlock the English from Korean tree so that I may go through the lessons and see what specific grammar points they had to be able to make a quiz?

You can't assign a test using the assignments system, sadly. I've requested that feature, though - if you scroll down through the educators forum, you'll see my post, and you can upvote it if you'd value that feature.

You can unlock the further lessons of the tree by doing what Duolingo calls testing out of the skills: either do the placement test when you first add the course, or use the checkpoints, the yellow bars at various points in the course, or test out of individual skills by clicking on them and choosing the test out option.

I know I can unlock the tree by testing out of it. The problem is while I can speak some Korean, I'm not that great at the test ㅠㅠ

I think it'd be a nice feature if teachers of a certain course automatically have it unlocked in order to review it for ourselves.

I teach my students using Duolingo, and I have a large amount of quizzes, tests, and worksheets that correspond with Duo. I'm still looking for the best way to share them though...

I think the best way is probably to host it somewhere, and then we'll need to add a section of links to the Schools page on the wiki, similar to the links section on the language pages.

Sounds like a good idea, I guess I could use some sort of free website maker. I wish Duolingo would incorporate these assessments into the program, though.

I put my resources on Google Drive and publicly share the folder. That's probably the easiest way of doing it.

For some reason I can't reply to your reply RE: the google Drive. I know how to make a Drive folder. I did it here not long ago. I was asking if you had the link to your folder which you said you publicly share. I'd be curious what you have set for Duo materials.

I'm a Computing teacher. The resources I've shared are mostly for teaching programming.

...though if you're interested in those, let me know :)

OK, I'm think about polishing up these resources and publishing them soon. Thanks for the advice!

Do you have the link to your folder?

If you want to use Google Drive, just go to http://drive.google.com/ .

Then all you need to do is create a folder called "Teaching resources", double-click into it, and click the share button. Then you can start uploading your resources into it.

Do you teach ESL or another language?

If English, and you wouldn't mind sharing them... hughcparker had a good idea using Google Drive.

edit. removed my link

It's probably going to be best for each of us to share our resources on our own Google Drive accounts, rather than uploading them to someone else's. That makes it easiest for us all to manage our own files.

Agreed. But JadeLugo didn't seem to know how to share, so this seemed like a quick, albeit temporary, fix.

You could share them using teacherspayteachers
