How are words selected for the Quiz?
Wokabulary automatically applies a spaced repetition scheme to your words.
As you do quizzes, words get automatically sorted into learning levels. When you answer a word correctly in the quiz, it rises to the next higher level. If you answer it wrong, it drops to a lower level.
The higher the level, the better you know a word and the less often you need to review it. So, the time intervals after which a word is recommended to be quizzed again increase with the level.
Wokabulary recommends words for a quiz depending on what level they are in and when they have been last asked in a quiz. Words are considered due for a quiz according to the following repetition pattern:
New: After 1 day
Level 1: After 2 days
Level 2: After 5 days
Level 3: After 12 days
Level 4: After 4 weeks
Learned: After 9 weeks
You can adjust this pattern in the Wokabulary Settings and choose a short or longer schema.
Wokabulary automatically selects the words for the quiz which should be practiced at that moment.
Of course, you can always do a quiz on any other selection of words you like by using a custom filter. And you can always select more words than what is recommended.
Wokabulary will select words for the quiz using the following algorithm:
- Take at least 10% new words
- Take remaining from words in Levels 1-4 that are due
- Take remaining from New words that are due, with recently asked preferred
- Take remaining from Learned words that are due
- If the user wants to quiz more words than are due (recommended) for a quiz, take remaining not-due words from all levels, those with next due date first
- Shuffle all selected words
