Progress Measurement Tool Testing?

A couple of days ago, I noticed a change in how they were tracked on the iOS app:

  • Some remained the same as before, with no real information beyond showing you the strength of individual skills and how many skills you'd completed.

  • Some showed the fluency %, like on the main website.

  • Some showed both the percentage of skills that were golden and the percentage of skills completed overall.

If that last option is one that was being tested, I'd like to let Duolingo know that I really liked it! It lets me know where I stand and I found it more motivating than seeing a fluency percentage, which can seem sort of ephemeral or random. (I understand that it was something that was previously available as a user script, but that's not what I was using- it was a feature of the app itself.)

I agree 100%! I currently keep getting shown my fluency but I preferred seeing my percentages.

I had the last one temporarily. I am very sad that somehow, it is now gone from my app :(. I hope it comes back soon!

Same! It was there for about a day, then disappeared and was replaced by the fluency meter.

Yeah, fortunately for me, mine was there for about a week. I posted a discussion on it. Later, it was removed and replaced by the inaccurate fluency percentage D: I was not happy.

Too bad the fluency meter is pointless.

I don't seem to have any of these things - I don't know if that's because I'm using mostly incubated courses, though. I can scroll down my tree and see which skills have decayed, but I have nothing that tells me, for example, how many skills I've completed.

The last one does seem genuinely useful.
