XP not being added or calculated correctly. Please help with this bug.

I agree that ultimately the points don't matter for learning, but competition does motivate one to learn. I am currently experiencing a bug on my account: when I do a test for a level that has say 15 lessons, I used to get 150xp but now I only get a max of 20xp no matter how many lessons are summarized in the tests. This means if I do three tests that would have covered 100 lesson, I will still only get 20 x 3 = 60xp. ... I don't find that motivational. Has there been a change in the system this week?

It is not a bug - they changed it. More details: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/31193643

I have the same problem. The only thing I remember I did, was to answer "yes" when the system asked me if I am a Spanish teacher. I am not, but out of curiosity I clicked that. Now, I cannot see anything about this setting in my account except something about notifications when some joins / leaves my classroom. Could this be the problem? How can I undo this teacher thing?


I just had a problem with that yesterday.


YES. My goodness! This has been all over the forums, please, check before your post. AnnieMod has posted the link. There's also a sticky post that should help as well.


I do not find that motivational either.
