Fluency shield

Get this thing out...it does not help and does no mean anything unless it is explained somewhere!

Thank you for the explanation. But to me it is still useless... I have finished my tree weeks ago and still practicing but that thing never changes..so am I at the maximum? I do not think so....

I am not making a case for it and as I am not in the test group, I don't know how useful/motivating or otherwise. One explanation for why it doesn't change for you is that you may have reached the maximum it thinks Duolingo can teach you

You are not in the test group? I thought people learning Spanish, German, French, etc. were all in the test group...I noticed you are learning both german and Spanish. :) have a nice day! ! :D

This is currently an A/B test, so only half of you will be able to see it. It is also only currently available for those of you learning Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, Italian, and English.

.. so that's a little confusing, but I also never activated coach so that might also have something to do with it :) You have a nice day too!

Even if it cannot be precisely accurate, it is still somewhat relative to your fluency. DL cannot make you fluent, but it does have an idea of how fluent you are and can get to...if that makes sense. ;)

I think even 'somewhat relevant to your fluency' is quite a stretch. I know it has been tinkered with over time, but I was once at over 98% and I had not finished the tree, nor done any immersion.

Yes, I guess you are right. I am only at 56% fluent, but I have finished the entire Spanish tree and have almost all skills strengthened. So I suppose you are right. :D

I agree - it takes up a lot of space on the page and shoves down the information most of us look at--- and it's meaningless......instead of this ridiculous shield, they should just show us the actual numbers for the different 'freshness' of words-- instead of the little graph that tells us nothing, actually show how many words are 'strong', 'weak', etc....and then let us 'click' on the level to see what words ARE weak....and let us practice THOSE words to bring them current........

seems they've lost the plot with a number of these 'indicators'....they don't tell us anything useful and the useful information we have, they get rid of..........(not to mention robbing us of the Streat lingots!! ...yeah, I know...that one is my pet peeve...after 400 days, we can get cranky when lingots are withheld.....LOL.)
