Why there is no Fluency Panel in Norsk course?

I really don't know why. That is a nice way to measure you progress. What do you think?

It will be there when the Duolingo HQ team decides to implement it. That said, it is, by all accounts, practically useless in measuring your fluency.

Can you suggest any more or less reliable online Norwegian test assessing you by the international language fluency scale?

Not an online one, no. The only reliable test I've taken is Bergenstesten, which you have to take in-person.

Yep, that one which I'm always bumping against while searching. It is too reliable I guess :) Yet for someone who considers the language learning just a hobby and just wants to assess own level this test is a kind of excessive. I just thought that I was searching using wrong words. I guess it was a huge amount of English online tests out there (for obvious reasons) that made me believe it has to be the same with Norwegian. Thanks anyway!

I'd ignore those "fluency" measures. Fluency is very subjective. I mean that some people consider themselves fluent even if they make a lot of mistakes but others only consider themselves fluent once they speak nearly flawlessly like a native.

Most people make mistakes in their native languages, and most people are fluent in their native language at least.

Yes, but I think you understand what I intended to say.
