Confused on progression

what would that even mean exactly? SRS is of course different for each item and the status is already displayed on the bottom of each item’s page. within reviews there’s userscripts that can make the current SRS status visible and other than that i think point of the whole system is to “forget” the items for a while anyway and not really bother about what status they have. you either remember them, or not.

sometimes it’s better to trust the system and just do the work (lessons+reviews) instead of ever more controls, stats and cues (well, in my opinion ^.^).

SRS overview @ WK guide (which is quite out of date as i have been informed below ^.^):
