Can you see what someone you're following has translated?

I am a foreign language teacher who would like to use Duolingo Spanish with my Middle Schoolers. I think I can see what they are doing if they give me their usernames and passwords, but if they read and translate an article can I see/ follow that?

Hola BarrettBrenda!

If you follow your students, you can see skills they finish, when they level up, and how many sentences in an article they translate (but first go to the Activity tab, the second tab from the left, and you will be able to see it).

You'll be able to see that they've translated however many "sentences" on their activity tabs, but you won't be able to see just what they've done. They could have done twenty lengthy sentences, or they could have "translated" twenty numerals in a temperature chart - Duolingo doesn't provide a way to tell the difference.

Just to add - it doesn't show the actual translations on the activity stream, but you can click through to the article and look through the translations for the person's username to see what they did.

If they translated, instead of proofreading...

Yes, it won't show you what they voted on. But the question asked about seeing what they translated, not what they proofread.
