Non-native with "87-99% Expert" I'm not surprised native speakers don't all ace the test. The test is supposed to be able to measure and separate even people at very high level which includes higher than just "random person" in UK, US, etc. With that said the fill-in-the-blanks tests are not good. Doing the test I had no doubt that a more intelligent person can score higher than someone with noticeably higher English proficiency which is probably why some natives are scoring lower than they expect (below 90%).
Practice test could definitely improve overall. I am a person who grew up knowing two languages, one of them being English. This test was not at all difficult for me. But, I do agree with others that the fill in the blanks could be confusing to someone who's learning English. That saying, to all the "native English speakers" complaining on here about how hard it was, you guys are absolute idiots to not get a proficient score. How embarrassing that foreigners know English more fluently than these people with English as their first language...
Wow I speak 100% fluent English and it gave me 50-66% advanced. This test is complete crap. The fill in the blanks were so hard for me I can't imagine a foreigner taking this test. I am currently using Duolingo to learn Spanish. I'm now reconsidering using Duolingo. Maybe I'll find a new app. This is crap. Fix the test for the poor foreigners.
Wow. Honestly, this is utter garbage. I am a native English speaker, and I was shocked at how downright terrible these questions are. They don't assess English proficiency at all, especially the fill in the blanks. It's crazy how terrible this is compared to Duolingo proper.
Horrible I am an American and 100% fluent in English. The fill in the blanks made absolutely no sense. I wouldn't recommend this to anybody. It's obviously crap
English is my first language. Took the test just to see what all the whining and bitching is all about. Got 93%. Test is all right, maybe could have chosen paragraphs that were less culture/interest specific. Started asking me questions centred around US (kinda unfair for the Europeans and Asians) and astronomy, which I know nothing about. Chose answers because they made grammatical sense.
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
