By design, Duolingo is able to adapt to your level by getting harder or easier based on your answers in the test.
In settings, you can set a daily goal of spending certain minutes, or gaining certain XP points in some modules. It motivates you to stay on track by recording how many days in a row you have achieved your target in learning a language.
With this gamified language learning tool, you can earn points for correct answers, get hearts by achieving daily goals on a streak and level up.
