Feedback--Receptive vs. Expressive

Does Duolingo track accuracy on receptive questions vs. expressive questions?

I would really like to be able to set a "preference" or something because I know that expressive is way harder for me than receptive.

English is my first language. I can translate Spanish to English, whether reading or listening, pretty well (receptive). But getting the exact right words from English to Spanish is MUCH harder (expressive). So, I'd love to have a heavier focus on expressive tasks.

Yep, to have a toggle option for this would be great, so newbies are by default set to receptive, but they can switch when they feel comfortable with the language.. (Or have this automatic once you are further down the tree). I do learning english from french sometimes just to get it the other way.. (Helps a lot), and also going on the french discussion to help people learning english is a good way to immerse some. :)
