Indication whether a Duolingo Story fits your skill level or not

First of all, I was searching for short stories, that would fit beginners. So it became quite handy, when I discovered Duolingo offered these in their Labs. I think, I will be a more enjoyable experience if you would be given an indication showing how likely you are to understand the story. For example, you might have encountered 85% of the words, which the story uses – the greater, the better for a reader to avoid clicking for hints and to feel like your practice pays off (if that makes sense). The stories' order might give you a suggestion if you are able to get through them without any problems, but I find it a little vague. But since I have not designed the stories, I do not know, if Duolingo wants readers to face new words, which they can add to their vocabulary. Provided that Duolingo would build an indication number (in %), it would be great if it reflected the following points: - whether you encountered the words in any of the courses - how good you are at remembering them - and if you are lacking certain topics of grammar (maybe not considered in the number, but a list of unfamiliar topics would be nice like: "You need to know Past Tense and Adjectives")

I'm fairly sure I remember them saying that they were for intermediate level so you would need to know most or all of the tenses / grammar in the tree

Oh, my bad. But it would be nice to know anyway, if you want to start reading them as soon as possible and want to know if your skills suffice
