I have done a couple level tests followed by a single placement test today (I did another one when I joined this site which placed me on Elementary). But I have noticed that the tests that I have done today do not always register my answers so they come out at 0% correct (hence newbie level). Also, I have this feeling where the questions on an Elementary level test are way out of my league. Maybe the test feature on this site is just an experimental feature that needs improving? I am quite sure that I would not be able to answer one of your Level tests after 80 Elementary lessons (as suggested before moving on).
This question comes after having studied 39 Elementary lessons on your site where I got the feeling that I was doing well (except for new words that I did not know previously, which I am adding to Pleco to review in SRS mode).
So another question of mine is, am I studying your lessons the wrong way or perhaps am I misinterpreting the results that I get from your tests? I get this feeling of having learned something right after finishing one of your Elementary lessons, but your tests are rapidly demoralizing me.
