Duolingo has become the #1 education app on both Google Play and the Apple App Store. Since its public launch five years ago, the company has created three independent apps on multiple platforms and attracted over 170 million users worldwide.Much of this success can be attributed to a data-centric and incremental approach to improving the app. Everything is A/B tested. Though user retention and daily active users are fairly straightforward to measure, a challenge that has presented itself over the years is how to measure how well people learn a language on our app.Presented in Partial Fulfillment of the CSD Speaking Skills Requirement
