Correlation with levels of school, college French

Hi, Has anyone seen any correlations between the various levels of Duolingo and conventional French programs. In particular, I'm curious about US High School and college course equivalents. Thanks!

I don't know if there's any official word, but my guess would be that the whole skill tree would be about equal to four years of high school or four semesters of college, in terms of grammar and vocabulary. But keep in mind that there's a lot of stuff you'd get in a classroom that this site doesn't currently provide, like small group discussions and essay assignments. The US also isn't very standardized, so what you cover can vary a lot depending on which textbook you're using and who your teacher/professor is. Um...my high school had us take the AP French Language Test after French 4, if that helps.
