How do XP assignments work? And about skill assignments...???

I made my first assignment 75 XP. I have a student who shows 380 XP points, yet it shows he hasn't started the assignment. I thought assigning 75XP goal of 30 minutes' work would mean that whatever students did would count toward the assignment.

I don't get it. Help.

And confirm, please, a skill assignment cannot be completed until a student has done or tested out of all the prior skill assignments, correct?

Hi Maestra_Kim,

Could you relocate this discussion in the “Educators" forum? You'll be more likely to have useful answers there (and it belongs there ;) ). Thx!
To relocate it (\/!\ please, don’t create a new one \/!\), edit your original post then select said forum in the drop-down menu on top-left of the edition area (see here for details).

Have a look to this short guide to help you knowing where to post your (future) discussions on Duolingo’s forums.


You'll need to bring your own account (Maestra_Kim) to level 2 (in any course) to be able to relocate your post there. By taking a shortcut on the course your teaching, this will not take you more than 3min. ;)

Hmm...I think I did move it successfully. And it's annoying that a teacher has to raise her own level just to post with the educators! Sadly, I'm still not 100% fluent in Spanish--LOL and grrrr!

XP assignments - XP from before you set the assignment doesn't apply.

Yes, each skill can only be completed once the previous skills have been completed or tested out.

All the work was done after the assignment was made--but what I'm thinking is that I made the assignment before all the students joined the class, so I probably have to redo the assignment, but the work still won't count because it will have been done before I made the assignment! So far, I"m not loving it and I really want to!

Is there a way to make an assignment apply to a student who joins the class after the assignment was made?

As far as I know, no.
