As a teacher during this Covid-19 school shutdown:

Duolingo: I think it would be great if you would make it to where teachers can give assignments weeks in advance. At this time, the max amount I can make it two weeks in advance (I mean as a start date) and that makes things a little more difficult.

Also I would love an option to allow or block stories being used as a means to gain XP. My kids have learned that they can click through the stories without reading anything and gain points unfairly. I have no way to monitor this now with them doing the work at home.

Just my thoughts!

Let your students know that Stories do not count toward assignment XP, ProfeSwan. They can click away all they want, and it will not affect their assignment in the least. :)

Just out of curiosity, why do you want to assign something weeks in advance? Do you forsee your students taking a steady path, never needing to slow down or speed up, and be re-evaluated?

Your thoughts are good! Keep posting questions, because we are all in this together.
