Is there a way to assign 'stories' to classroom students so that their progress is sent to me?
No, unfortunately. I have the students send me a screenshot of their "You completed the story!" screen. There are many of us hoping that someday we can see their progress and give assignments in stories.
I have 4 questions typed out on a half piece of paper with questions from the story but different from the ones asked in the stories. My students turn these papers in for a homework check off. Works well but would love to see the stories linked to the Duolingo Classroom.
