How do I take a test of my progress so far?

Is it possible to take a test of my progress?

November 5, 2017



Yes, but it is a little-known way (NOTE: Be sure that your account is on the language you want to test out of, and that you have 25 or more lingots):

STEP 1: Go to the discussions forum.

STEP 2: Go to the browser console (F12 should take you there)

STEP 3: Type the highlighted message into the console: duo.old_web_url_whitelist=["^.+"];, Press enter, And the thing will reply ["^.+"];

STEP 4: Go to the homepage.

STEP 5: Go to the lingot store (press the button at the top corner of the tree, don't press the lingot)

STEP 6: Buy and take the test!


Yes. You can either take a placement test when you start a new language. Otherwise, you can test out of skills.


You might want to check out this forum thread: "Is there a way to test your progress to see how well you are doing?" (Sorry if there's a way I could provide a link for you; I don't know how to do that.)

Woot. gives instructions there on how to access the progress test that we used to be able to buy with lingots.

If I remember correctly, it'll give you a score between 1 and 5. Expect to encounter material that you haven't learned yet in Duolingo. It won't give any feedback other than a score, but it's encouraging to try it periodically and see that your score is nudging up.


Oops - sorry about that. Thanks for not taking offense.


Hi Aria271644,

Could you relocate this discussion in the “Troubleshooting" forum? Which is the place meant for such discussion. Thx!

To relocate it (*), edit your original post then select said forum in the drop-down menu on top-left of the edition area (see here for details).

(*) \/!\ please, don’t create a new one \/!\

Have a look to this short guide to help you knowing where to post your (future) discussions on Duolingo’s forums.

Not per se. But you can strengthen skills and see by yourself how you're doing.


correct me if im wrong, but I dont think this would fall under the Troubleshooting category. Troubleshooting (at least I think) is more of technical problems or stuff going wrong. this user is just asking if a feature is available.


Hey Aria271644, What I do is I just test out of the number of skills I took, (that's basically a unit test) and then you have 3 hearts. If you lose the hearts, you fail the test. If you still have the three hearts at the end of the test, you passed. Hope this helps!


how is this supposed to go in troubleshooting? it 's not trouble, it 's a question.
