My students can't access the assignment

Hi everyone, I am new here. I assigned a unit to my students. They see the unit I have assigned to them. The assignment is open from this morning early for two weeks. They are supposed to have access. They see it, but nothing happens when they click. What is wrong? Thanks in advance!

Hi, are you able to edit your post and use the drop-down menu to change the topic from "Troubleshooting" to "Educators"?

If not, please do some lessons until you get to level 2, and then edit your post and change the topic. This will move your question to the Educators forum, which is where you can get help with the "Duolingo for Schools" product.

Most folks here in the general Troubleshooting forum don't use Duo for Schools but the Educators forum is monitored by staff and a lot of fellow educators who are very knowledgeable and helpful.

Best of luck!


They see it, but nothing happens when they click.

If the teacher assigns a locked skill (grey instead of coloured), the student has to test out his knowledge of all the previous skills before he is able to do the assigned skill.

Each new skill will use the knowledge learned in the previous skills.
In my experience, this is a good educational feature of Duolingo.
