Daily plan

Daily plan

The existing considerations so far have had the goal of recommending to the student the day he/she should review the Fact next time. Let’s think for a minute how to organize the repetition of the Facts within one day.

Reviewing difficult Facts

The model we proposed for the description of learning and forgetting is based on the presumption that after repetition, we will remember the Fact perfectly. In the implemented terminology, we would say that the Retrievability grew to 100%. If the student from the past review forgot the Fact completely, this presumption can not be completely trusted. Therefore, he/she should review the Fact on the same day if he/she does not get a good evaluation.

The implicit limits for good evaluation are at least 3 points on the scale 0-4.

Three sources

Facts from three sources are submitted for testing in the appropriate day:

  • New Facts. Those the student meets for the first time.
  • Facts for repetition. Those which have exceeded the recommended limit from the last repetition.
  • Forgotten Facts. Those for which the student got a bad grade on today and therefore should review them.

Daily limit

To some less diligent students, it sometimes happens that after the initial excitement, the activity is suppressed. They slow down in learning and the line of Facts for repetition grows so much that it is beyond anybody’s ability to handle it in one day. Such a situation is not very motivating. The student needs the software to compliment him/her at the end of the day’s efforts, that he/she met the daily plan. Therefore, the daily plan has set limits for new Facts (10) and Facts for review (100). The student can adjust these limits.

Mixing algorithm

The software task is to take Facts from three input lines and mix them accordingly, so the student goes naturally through his/her daily plan, to take approximately equally from all three sources and not to offer the same Fact immediately after it has been just offered. The RE-WISE method repeatedly composes a current group of 10 Facts. It takes from the input lines in proportion to their length. It randomly mixes the ten Facts. Forgotten Facts, where the student did not get a good evaluation, are lined up at the end of the third line. After processing the ten Facts, the entire cycle repeats until the daily plan has been met.

The student can turn the individual lines on and off.

And this concludes the description of the behavior of the RE-WISE method within one day of testing. Let’s briefly summarize the conclusions we arrived at in the article on the principle of the RE-WISE method: Summary.
