Friendly cheating

Hi Y'all,

I have a situation where students are getting others (most likely native Spanish speakers) to test out of the levels. I assign 1-4 levels and some students are 10 levels ahead because of their test.

These are the options that I am considering:

Provide them with the opportunity to confess and create a brand new Duolingo account. The problem with that is that they will need a different email address and I'm not sure that all of them will have that. Most have used their school email.

Reset their account so that they have to complete each of their levels again without testing out. This allows them to keep the levels that they have rightfully done but forces them to complete the ones of which they tested out again.

I don't see where I have any control of the levels that students have already completed. Is there something that I am missing?

Is there some other way for me to track that they are now completing the levels? If I just have them go back and strengthen a skill, will it reflect that in their progress so that I can monitor it?

Aren't they creative?

And thanks!

XP levels do not correspond to language proficiency or skill, but it does reflect effort and time spent.
