I am about to take the Spanish Progress Quiz! Wish me luck!
I have waited exactly one month since I first took this quiz. It is time. Time to see what I have learned! I am extremely nervous... what if I do not do any better this time around? I suppose I can't do much worse - my first score was 1.58/5.
Here are the rules for taking the quiz:
1)You are allowed all the time you want on it. Think carefully about each answer.
2)No looking anything up! That's cheating. If you do not know an answer, give it your best guess and move on.
Well folks, that's it! No more procrastinating! It's time to knock this out of the park. I will post a reply with my new score once I finish. Wish me luck!
How did you do? I took the French quiz yesterday. It was 5 months from the last time I took it. Got the exact same score. I would like to know what I messed up on in order to review.
Ah so! You inspired me to go take it and I scored 1.58/5. Wonder what that means. I'm sure it does show that I am very new to this.
That is very coincidental! I too received a 1.58 my first try. Maybe the test isn't as comprehensive as I initially thought. Still good practice though.
Ah yes, I forgot to post my results on this discussion: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/4567712$comment_id=4571213. I can't wait to take it again in another month!
I forgot you could do these, thanks! I got 3.96, but I didn't use any accent marks (maybe like two), does that influence the score?
I do not think it does. There's no way to tell for sure, but if it's anything like the regular lessons then accent marks are not counted.
I can't think of any other way to get a 5, though. I got all the questions right (I was iffy on one of them, but one question shouldn't make a 1.04 difference.
Yea, I guess they could count the accents then. You could ask some of the moderators and see if anyone has any insight into this. The only other thing I can think of is the speed with which you answer the questions - and again I don't think that is a factor in this quiz - then again, who knows? If you make a separate post with this question you should get some answers.
I got 5.0 some time ago in Spanish. This was about a month after finishing the tree, keeping the skills golden and having all words at "still strong" level.
Since then my Spanish scores were: 4.7, 4.85, 4.7, 4.41. I kept practising Spanish a little bit, but for the most part moved to learning Italian, and my Italian scores since then are: 1.13, 2.16, 2.94, 3.07, 4.1.
Given that you are at level 13 I judge that you haven't finished the tree yet. The test gives you questions from all the material, not just what you have completed. Also there's no way for you to tell how many questions you got right - it only acknowledges that the answer was submitted, it doesn't give you feedback like practice or lessons do.
I'm two units from completing the tree, but just spent seven months in Mexico. Even without that, though, you can pretty well know that you're right because it's the same question base as in the other units, same vocabulary, and same style.
Regardless of all that, though (perhaps I missed more than I thought), do you always use accents?
I think I might have used accents when I got 5.0, I usually do that if I know there's an accent. You should try with accents and see what happens :)
Anyway, sometimes Duolingo does not accept answers that are obviously correct, this might be another explanation.
Good luck! I am restarting my Spanish sense I stopped during the summer. Good luck!
