How can I get more points?
Do more activities! Avoid doing the same activities too many times as after the third time you will no longer receive any points.
Will teachers see which questions I get wrong/incorrect?
If they have set them as an assignment/homework for you then, depending on the activity type, yes.
Can I remove myself from the leaderboard?

How do I check my progress for a subject?
