Weekly Progress Report

Emails of my weekly progress report bear no resemblance to the number of XPs I accumulate during the week. Every day (including weekends) I do at least six Strengthen Skills exercises (60XP) and recently have been completing stories in the lab as well. My progress is recorded accurately on the home page and in my profile, but the weekly report never shows the correct number of XPs accumulated during the week. It is always well below. A glitch?

I have the same problem and am interested to hear if anyone has any explanation. I've had a couple of theories but none seem to explain the inconsistency.

I also found this slightly frustrating. Frustrating enough to decide on keeping my own record of the daily progress I make during a period of 3 weeks. (In hindsight, I really have some interesting ways of spending time, now, haven’t I?)

Although there might be more to it, my data implies (see how professional I can sound now) that the score for “this week” in the weekly progress report, which arrives early Saturday morning, always gives you just the amount of XP you earned the day before, i.e. on Friday. The “last week” score is then counted from last week’s Friday to this week’s Thursday (inclusive).

So it might be that it’s not a glitch in Duo’s math, but the usage of a peculiar calender which has weeks starting on Friday and ending on Thursday.

We receive the weekly progress reports early Saturday, but the week they measure seems to run through the end of the day Sunday. Basically it shows you five days worth of work.

Yes, I get this problem as well. My coach level is set to 30xp a day, but the progress report shows: 2 weeks = 23 xp, 1 week = 71xp, this week = 54 xp

Someone else reported this 10 months ago and there were no replies just people voted it down (idiots who don't understand voting)

Someone on Reddit had the idea that it might just show xp from new skills, rather than practising excising skills. This might have some truth to it, as it says I only got 30 xp last week, which is definitely not true, but I did spend a lot of time strengthening old skills last week.

If that were the case, I would have, at most, 280 xp per week. I generally run substantially higher, due to my practice of skills completed previously.

I have this problem as well and at first believed the "weird calendar" explanation. But this week, my report is showing 0 XP for last week and 40 XP for the week before, even though I do 3-9 lessons a day and have 28 day streak.

You are not alone with experiencing the disappointment and frustration with the progress report. I too have been trying to work out the weekly report error and how it came about. I did ponder if using different devices attributed to it but I haven't tested this theory out yet. Logically it should not matter.

Still stumped. Not working. I don't understand why it suddenly stopped. Can duolingo help? If I upgrade to duolingo plus would this problem go away?

I doubt if upgrading to Duolingo Plus would solve what sounds like a glitch or possibly a connection problem.

Darn! But thank you helping my little brain out in this. Much appreciated.
