What are "tree shortcuts?"

In the shop center, it say"Lingots are not awarded when you use a tree shortcut to level up or finish a skill." But I'm confused as to what they are. Is it when you use a Freeze Streak? If you could let me know, I'd be grateful. Thanks.

There are shortcuts a learner may use to quickly complete the skill tree. These shortcuts include:

  • Placement test - Tests all knowledge of a language tree allowing learners to skip all the skills they already know;

  • Checkpoints - Tests all knowledge of a language tree up to a certain point and once the test is completed it automatically marks all known skills as complete.

  • Test out - Tests all knowledge of an individual skill.
