What's the purpose of collecting lingots? I used to collect them to practice the tests, but now they're not useful anymore.

Maybe you can convince Duolingio to put it back on.

I was doing the same thing, it seems they want to replace useful items with popular ones which may not be so helpful to learning.

I agree with you. How can you test your progress now??? I will have to find another programme

i agree, i can put the lingots to very little use ; save a streak or wager and win more redundant lingots.

i really liked the tests. It was a challenge I enjoyed. I was away for a month and unable to access Duolingo and when I got back to it, the tests were gone. Not happy.

lingots and upvote are used to shake hand with unique opinions and suggestions.

When it was available, was it used as a faster way to get XP? I've been away for some time so I haven't heard about these tests.

No - it just told you a fluency score out of 5. It truly assessed your level and measured your progress. In it you cant look up for words, obviously cause it's a test! I forgot whether it gave XP (I only took the test once) - but I don't think so. And this feature was very old, but I am not sure how many people actually used it. I only took it once.

Good question. I was just about to take a test (that I had paid for with lingots long ago), and it was gone! Hopefully this is just temporary while they do a redesign. It would be a real shame if the tests were gone for good.
