Test out of current level on a topic

Hi,

I see a little key sign that allows me to jump up to the next level of a particular skill, but when I pass (by getting less than 4 correct) it doesn't change.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you in advance.

Hi, Fabrizio! When you test out in order to advance to the next level, the maximum number of mistakes you are allowed to make is three. That's why there are three hearts at the top right corner. Every time you make a mistake you lose a heart. If you lose all three hearts it means you've made three mistakes, and that's still OK. But another mistake and you won't be able to advance. You'll have to retake the test. I hope this answers your question. Happy learning!

Hi, thank you for your answer. I know how the test works, it's more that when I'm completing the test I'm not progressing to the next level as promised prior to the test :)

If you're really making less than four mistakes when testing out, then you should be able to advance to the next level. If you're not allowed to advance, then perhaps it's what Linda said. Maybe there's something wrong with Duolingo that's temporary and hopefully resolves really soon. Though I must say that I didn't experience anything like that when I tested out myself just now. Give it another try; maybe the problem is already resolved. If not, give it a few hours and try again later. In any case, I would like to know how it went. Good luck!

I just tried again and the same thing is happening. For example, I clicked on 'Food' for which I'm currently level 1 (first time returning for a while), and I get the message saying ' Jump to Level 2! Pass the test with fewer than 4 mistakes to jump up a level. We won’t make it easy for you though…' When I pass the level successfully I return to the homepage and 'Food' has remained at level 1...

Ciao, Fabrizio.
Per curiosità ho provato con "oggetti" e... funziona!
Ho ottenuto +200Xp e sono passata al livello 3. Il salto è immediato.

Thank you for trying and confirming. Could it be that I have already obtained the Owl and completed the course or not?

When I pass the level successfully I return to the homepage

When you successfully answer the last question, at the bottom right corner of the page there's a green button that reads Continue. You have to press it so that your progress registers, and then you automatically return to the homepage. Is it possible that you forget to press the Continue button, and you yourself press the Home button instead? I know I'm grasping at straws here but that's the only other thing I can think of that could possibly explain what's going on.

P.S.: I tested out again today and the system immediately registered my progress and allowed me to advance to the next level.

Credo proprio di sì !
Sei al livello 3 in "Food" :-D

Ma ... c'è qualcosa che non va, non sono più visualizzati i tuoi giorni di slancio ( day streak)!!!

Ciao Fabrizio. Possibly Duo is a little slow to register this evening. My xp didn't register for about 15 minutes. In bocca al lupo.
