"Practice" XPs - more detail would be helpful to a teacher

Hi, I've been using DuoLingo in my classroom for a few years now. I give students some class time to work on whichever skills they like as a warm-up, and I also ask them complete a certain number of XPs each week as homework. I really appreciate the weekly email summaries that show me what work the students did and which skills they worked on.

I'd like to make a request regarding that informational email, and it would also apply to the "activity details" in the charts of student activity. I'd like to be able to tell the difference between XPs earned as practice when students are the DuoLingo tree, versus when they worked on a Story, versus when they used a Bot, or in other ways. Right now, the reports all just say "Practice" for any of those, but the learning and how well students are making use of them are not always the same.

If this would be helpful to me, I'm supposing it would probably be helpful to some other teachers as well. Thank you for taking this request into consideration!

I agree! I believe that many teachers would appreciate seeing this additional information layed out in their weekly reports for review.

Thanks for sharing the suggestion.

I do find reading the weekly e-mail much easier than going into 130 students' individual profiles. I totally agree with your request for more details.

Since you bring up differentiating between labeling the tree vs. Stories, I would also like to add that I think it would be great if in addition to skills and XP, we could assign a specific story.
