Hi all,

I've done the Dutch progress quiz a few times, I do it every few months, starting from over a year ago when I started Dutch. I finished Dutch a little while back and I've been maintaining my tree since. Generally I feel quite good with it now, there's no particularly hard sections but still room for improvement - hence I do the quiz every now and again.

The thing that I don't understand is the score for the progress quiz. The first time I ever did it, I scored 1.02, I hadn't completed much of the tree then, I was happy with a score of 20% considering that's about how much of the tree I knew. as time went on I got incremental benefits, as to be expected because I'd gotten closer and closer to completing the tree.

Now look at the 3 most recent tests I've taken, each one significantly worse than the previous. These are since I completed the tree. I thought it was a glitch when I did it last week so I did it again and only scored half of what I got last week, and less than the very first time I took the quiz! I don't believe I've been getting worse at Dutch than when I started, in fact I felt very confident with the quiz, I really thought it would be in the 4's, I felt more confident this time than any previous time in fact. Why are my scores getting so low now I've finished the tree?

0.87/5.0 just now 1.78/5.0 1 week ago 3.16/5.0 3 months ago 3.32/5.0 7 months ago 1.33/5.0 8 months ago 1.78/5.0 9 months ago 1.78/5.0 10 months ago 1.78/5.0 1 year ago 1.02/5.0 1 year ago

(P.S sorry for formatting I can't get the new lines to work for some reason)

Thanks Robin

Maybe because you are taking the tests so close together.

Does that affect it? I would have thought it was only affected by your answers. Also between when I got 3.16 and 1.78 was about 3 months, so I don't know
