Introducing basic data export

The ability to export student data is one of the most frequent requests we've gotten over the last months. We're happy to announce that you can now export classroom summaries to CSV! You'll notice the download icon in the top menu when you are looking at a classroom in the detail view.

Give it a try and let us know what you think! We'd love to hear how you use your exported data.

Excellent, this means that even learners can export their own data!

I just noticed this only shows the data about the class, not the drilled down data for each student. It would be useful to add that too.


Great news that these features are being prioritized. The flexibility and strength of duolingo as a learning app is excellent and the dashboard options and class activities are great for teachers. It's lacking in the progress tracking area for students and CSV download is great way to let the more savvy in the teacher community create the progress tracking tools they need. For example allowing teacher users to download the specific user data as Dessamator mentioned would be great.

By having detail on each student output to a CSV table, a pivot table can indicate each student's intensity of practice, week to week or over a semester (several months). This would translate to recognition of the student's efforts in the real world, maybe even having the real world class attach a participation grade to duolingo activities completed!

    Please help me..... what exactly happens when I export my data????



    what exactly happens when I export my data?

    You are confusing a bit the the both available data options.

    Your normal user profile on the web: https://www.duolingo.com/settings/account

    This lists "Export my data" as the last menu item and is only related to the newest "Privacy" announcement by "Drive-Thru".
    Just forget about that!
    It will only send you an e-mail about a zip once you requested it.

    And it has nothing to do with a profile picture as explained in my other comment below ;)

    Duolingo staff is talking in this thread about the schools teacher classroom ciriculum CSV export.
    Again, a completely different construction zone and only related to teachers (or students in a classroom).



    Does this include a full "learned words" source-target language CSV mapping?

    My plan: I am trying to find a way to see all words for my PT-DE and PT-EN reverse courses.

    The schools.duolingo.com teacher classroom curriculum unfortunately lists all the skill based words in the German target language, without the (PT) source.

    As I am a German native speaker, I would be interested in Portuguese words listing, combined with German/English translations.

    Otherwise I would at least have to be able to copy and paste the words list into google, and to create Memrise courses or AnkiSRS decks from the list.

    One column definition is not enough, sorry.
    I need at least both.
    As English is my second language, indeed the best would be to have three definitions (PT, EN, DE as fallback).

    The www.duolingo.com/words list for PT-DE only lists the German words.

    The Portuguese definition is unfortunately missing even this information is even provided in your "vocabulary/overview API" stream!

    A CSV words export of two column definitions from course contributors is much better than to have to only rely on a Google translation!


    For the forward EN-PT tree, which lists all words in the Portuguese target I also have to tell you that the www.duolingo.com/words list feature is quite broken.

      Well, as I said above, I don't know what happens when I export my data. The big question I have is: If I export my data, does that allow me to change my profile picture? Please help me



      Would you please stop down-voting my above comments?!
      They are not related to you but only Duolingo staff! Thanks.

      A profile picture or the change has ZERO to do with CSV exports of the educator school software.

        Dear Mr. Heiss, I was just notified of your comment and clicked on the link to see what you were referring to. I found out my 10 year old daughter went to the "help" section of her account (my account since she's under age) and clicked on how to change her profile picture. The screen shot directions that were displayed to her seemed simple enough but when she went into her account settings as directed, her only options were a list at the bottom, including "export data" in the same spot that "upload picture" should have been in. She thought she was accessing a help forum and did not understand that this was for staff only. This is where she was directed to ask questions since her screen is different from what it should have been. She was trying to figure that out by herself and I have talked with her now about asking me first before going beyond the duolingo exercises if she needs help with something. She did not mean to down-vote (didn't know what I was referring to when I showed her your comment) and is extremely sorry and embarrassed for the misunderstanding. Thank you for your understanding. Respectfully, R. Renfroe



        You are welcome.

        This "Troubleshooting(English)" is a better place to post generic question to: https://forum.duolingo.com/topic/647


        Mine is showing zero xp for all students.


        I just reproduced this bug and we'll have it fixed as soon as possible. Thanks for reporting!
