Less experience?

Why do I suddenly get less experience when doing strengthening? And why does it seem to be completely random how much experience you get?

Normally you get 10 xp. Now I only got 9 in my first test, made a few mistakes. Next test I did, in which I didn't make any mistake, only 7 experience points? Why?

This is not very motivating...

I didn't like it at first either. But now I find that when my "reward' for review starts to drop off -- I'm getting less points because I'm reviewing stuff that hasn't has as long to decay, or that I can complete with less mouse-hovers, whatever Duo uses to determine the "value" of a review -- I'm encouraged to tackle a new skill.

It's pushing me out of my comfort zone and into learning more new material. It might actually be good for me.

I'm reserving judgment, but I don't hate it yet. XD

I know right, I feel like since my goal is only 10 XP, I spend my time ONLY strengththening and not learning new words...
