Fluency levels

Why does this change and go down? I have just done the French test to start and was placed at 15% fluency, then it reverts to 1%? I moved the 46% fluent in Italian, then the next lesson back down to 45%? It German, which I feel I have barely started, I am already at 24%!! Doesn't make sense Joyce

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

The fluency score is very inaccurate, basing its numbers off of how strengthened your skills are and doesn't take into account any other studies you have done outside of Duolingo. I would suggest ignoring it, since it can only go to about 50-60% anyway.

Maybe you was making too many mistakes ?
