Progress Quiz Missing
I purchased a progress quiz a while ago. Today I decided to take the test but when I went to the lingot store I found out that there was no sign for a progress quiz there at all. Meaning not even a link to purchase a new one Did anyone else face such a problem? Or did Duolingo say that they were going to suspend that quiz?
Perhaps it has been removed with the new website, as I still have the option. However, I still have the old website.
Thank you, but no it does not work. This is a link to the lingot store and not to the quiz itself
I bought it but can't show you the link as I do not have time to do it now. I will try to give you the link later.
It probably won't work. When I hove my username while on the discussion site I can still see the "Quiz History" link, but it leads to a 404 Error...
I wish it was better news though! I miss the quiz too and asked the same question 2 weeks ago. A mod told me, that they don't know if it's gone for good, but apparently there has been an A/B test for a year with some people not having the quiz... So I fear the worst...
My workaround for now is to make a placement test with another account. It's not as accurate, but it's at least something.
Now I see, I thought it was a temporary glitch. Now I fear the worse too. I was really relying on having that test.
Also, the quiz would be MUCH more useful if you could see the mistakes you made after.
It wouldn't, the objective of the quiz is compare the user's progress over time. When you don't know the answers, you don't memorize them, and when your score is higher than the latest, you know that it's higher because you know more, not because you memorized the answers.
but of course, you can only learn from your mistakes if you know what they are...
Once you are intermediate or advanced, and the "strengthen skills" is too easy, it's hard to know what things you have to learn, what are your weaknesses. But if you're not, you can learn from your mistakes easily in "strengthen skills". Another problem for people with intermediate level or more, is that the more you know a language, it is harder to notice when you improve your skills. The same way we don't notice when a child grows up without measuring tools, because the grown is too slow, it's hard to notice when our skills are better, without a tool to mesure it, and the quiz was one of the best tools to do it. The quiz is not made to teach you anything,it is made only to measure your knowledge in a language. If the quiz shows you the answers, the quiz is not measuring your language skills, it is measuring how good you are in memorizing the answers.
