Bonus skills missing and low percentage between accounts

So, my wife and I started using Duolingo to learn German.

One thing I noticed is that my percentage is going up really fast compared to her. I'm at 30% and she is only at 8% eventhough we are both at the same lesson/checkpoint. Sometimes she has done a lesson more than me yet still my progress is further than hers.

Another thing which is different, is that I have the possibility to add bonus skills like flirting and idioms. She doesn't have this option at all.

Can someone explain to us why our accounts are different?

Please answer my question, What gadget do you and your wife use, (mention : iPhone, laptop, desktop...etc)

I kind of figured it out. I took a beginners test to see how far my skills are when i made my account. She made an account without doing the test. She just made another account and took the evaluation test and now she has the same options as I have.

So I suppose this topic can be closed. Thanks for your time though.

Probably, the difference in Fluency% in her first account was caused bij a so-called A/B test of the Duolingo staff. Attention:
