  5. Word rating algorithm


Word rating algorithm

I really like the new gold bar tree design, but I found something strange after completing a lesson for the first time since my account switched over. Every one of the seven new words is rated as 'perfect'. Is this correct? I'm quite sure I haven't actually perfected any of them. Has anyone else noticed this?

Im pretty sure thats correct. I think now what it does is when you first see a word its in your short term memory so you know it well but over time the bar degrades until you repractice the word. Im guessing after a while of practicing a single word, the bar stays full as its in your long term.
