I was just strengthening some skills in Timed Practice, and I noticed that without making any unusual effort I suddenly had over a minute left! :D

As far as I've seen, the time received for a correct answer ranges from 5 seconds (multiple choice) to 18 seconds (longer sentence).

This is great! Since I'm a relatively fast typer I won't have much use of this (except that now I'll be able to finish every single timed practice to the end :), but I know that there are a lot of people for whom it was too hard, who only managed to get 3-4 answers right before running out of time, but will now be able to finish the whole practice :D

(If this is not a new thing and I'm only just noticing it, I'm sorry :)

I hadn't consciously noticed this but you're right: I just finished an Italian practice with nearly two minutes on the clock! This will be very useful for reporting missing translations and other mistakes: previously I often had to choose between completing my practice and submitting a report :-).

Yes, I didn't think of the reporting aspect. I don't find much to report, fortunately :) But checking sentence discussions is always good too. :D

I've heard that a test group had this before, but at least I didn't have it yet last night when I slogged away to even get a few measly points... Have to give it a try soon!

Ok, that explains it. When I finished a time practice with quite a bit of time to spare this morning I thought "wow, I must be getting really good". But, I think Duolingo giving us more time is a better explanation. :)
