  5. Timed Practice Suggestion


Timed Practice Suggestion

Timed Practice should have different tiers of difficulty. I'm finding the 2:00 limitation is far too fast for me to type. Perhaps it should be designed with rewarding you coins at different time tiers. For example: 10 coins at 2 mins; 7 coins at 3 mins; etc.

We'll be changing the way these timed lessons work next week. Thanks for bringing this up.


That's right. For me it's more difficult because i'm dutch speaking and I have to think twice before I add my answer. Have to do it right in English and French. Lots of typos for me... :-)


There should be less focus on speed and more positive reinforcement for accuracy, proficiency, and mastery. I never want to feel rushed when practicing something new. Like the others I'm highly prone to typing errors as well. The timer should be removed.


I agree. I am finding two minutes to be much to difficult to achieve as the lessons become harder.


I agree. It's not that I don't know the answers, I just end up with a lot of annoying typos from trying to write too fast. I've stopped trying to do them at all, it got so frustrating.
