I took the placement test, now what?
I just signed up yesterday. I took 5 credits of Spanish in high school, so I definitely don't need to start at the beginning. I have taken the placement test twice, but when I finished nothing happened. It didn't tell me what a passed or where to start. I am confused as to what I am supposed to do next.
At the end of the placement test, based on the user's performance, it will say how many skills they have completed and place them at the appropriate level. Duolingo does a fair job of capturing a wide gamut of possible correct solutions for each exercise. But, it's still possible some correct answers are missing and thus the final result may not be as expected. In such a case, if there are lots of skills which the user is already confident in, he or she can reset their progress and retake the test. If the number of such skills is less, they can choose the test out option either at checkpoint level or at individual skill level.
I had the same problem. I just took the placement test in German three times and each time when I'd finished absolutely nothing happened. I was expecting it to advise me which level I was at or which level to start at with the course. Surely it's not meant to tell you nothing at all?
