It was challenging, but I got Advanced 1 or above in every category. I wonder if that is typical for duolingo level 18.
That was interesting, thanks for posting. I got a superior, an advanced, and 2 intermediates. I'm at level 20 here but I'm only about halfway through the tree--I've been getting a lot of XPs by translating.
What's interesting is what was stronger (vocabulary, then grammar) and what was weaker (listening and verbs). I would guess translating is helping with vocabulary and grammar. Listening is the hardest skill for me in general. And I haven't gotten to a lot of the verb tenses yet.

I took it and got an overall score of superior, with scores of adv. 3, sup., sup., and adv. 3. On other tests I have taken from other sites I have found here or other places, I usually score between high intermediate and low advanced. I finished my tree around level 11 or 12, but I was almost finished with a degree in Spanish when I found duolingo. There was also an error on the test, so I should have earned a superior in one of the categories rather than advanced 3. I have finished German up to the first checkpoint, and am at level 6 in German. I would probably only get a question or two right on a similar test in German, maybe a couple more with some lucky guesses. So I don't really think the levels on duolingo can accurately predict what skill level some one has in a language.
