XP given per lesson seems to be more than it should be ...

I noticed this beginning yesterday, but didn't think too much of it. I thought it was just an A/B test that gave me extra XP.

Today, though, I noticed something that made me think it was a bug. When I did a lesson and got everything right, it would give me the usual notice about XP - but instead of +10 on the first window, it said +15. Then the next window said +5. So that's 20 XP for a single lesson.

Then I did another lesson and got a few wrong. At the end of it, it gave me the same window with XP, but this time it said +13. I went to the next window, and sure enough, it gave me +3. That's +16 XP for a single lesson.

So ... is this just an A/B test that grants double bonus points, or just a bug from trying to merge base 10 points and bonus points that caused the bonus points to double? I didn't see any other posts like this, nor any announcements that I'm aware of, so I figured I'd start a discussion.

Technical info: I saw this on an Android phone using the web version. I'll try it on the computer as well and see if it does it there too. (EDIT: The same thing does occur on the computer as well.)

Thank you!

What I have seen is it says I received 15 points, and on the next screen it says +5 for the bonus, which should be 20 in all. But, in reality I am only getting 15 total. The first screen is a mistake somehow (as it will also say I need 10 more to complete my daily goal when with the bonus I only need 5; which it confirms on the next screen announcing the bonus).

Ah, ok. Double-checking on Duome (my phone doesn't show me how much XP I've earned), it looks like the same thing happened to me. So it is a bug. Thanks for the clarification! :)
