Does Peeking affect progress?
Is 'peeking' (ie hovering over a word to see its translation) logged?
Think it should account for some form of progress tracking, maybe it already does :)
Thanks Luis, intuitive. All the best moving forward with an already great product =]
Ahhh. So does peeking decay your skills faster? That would be why I loose strength so fast. I have so many diminished bars that I'm to the point now where I am almost starting over.
Luis, "I have a friend" who has been know to x out of lessons or reviews when she messes up the first two or three questions. Do you have to complete a full set of reviews or a complete lesson for the program to know that I don't know those words or phrases or does it compute each question whether I finish the set or not?
I absolutely always peek, even on words I know. Why? Because I have been conditioned to doublecheck by the real world translations and by frequent loss of hearts for being overconfident.
I doubt Duolingo would ever penalize someone for it. Because you pretty much have to use the peeking/hovering to decipher unknown words in the real world translations.
