Will someone please explain to me why points vary when a Test Out is completed. I have had points varying from 10 to 40XP, (40, 30, 20, 10 respectively for each Test Out I've done in the last 2 days). Thank you kindly.

The test out gives you the same amount of XP you would have gotten from completing the skill normally, i.e. 10XP per lesson.

On a different note, it might help you get answers if you gave your discussion post a title related to the content of the discussion rather than your username (many people might think it's spam or an introduction post amd not read it).

I've noticed the same. It appears to be based on the number of lessons in each skill. Some skills have only 2 or 3 lessons, so if you test out of that particular skill, you only get 20 or 30 XPs. Also, you'll have noticed you get 3 hearts and if you test out of skill with all hearts intact, you receive the full amount of XP's, but if you test out of a skill with only 1 heart remaining, it deducts points for the hearts you lost.
