Test out of skills not working
I am a teacher. I am checking out the new features. I tried testing out of basics 5 times, with 0 errors, and I have had the hearts remaining, but am told I did not test out of any skills.
I hope they fix this. For my advanced students this will be very frustrating to do "baby" Spanish, instead of testing into an appropriate level. Please fix this!!!!!!
They have removed this feature from the course. However, you can still test out of entire checkpoints (which gives you crown level one on all of the skills you tested out of).
Don't test out. It is dead. You can test our the next checkpoint only from top to down. I stopped using the Crown system. I use instead the unofficial https://duolingo.eu/(Your_Username), replacing the (Your_Username) with yours. It is reliable. It cannot give you crowns but who cares. I never asked for Crowns. I am satisfied to get 100% in my progress (shown on hovering over the owls. And it also gives you statistical data. It is a more difficult and less user friendly but it works. And you can monitor your progress in details.
