These days I often have around 100 reviews to start my day. I don’t usually have time to do them all at once, sometimes I just have time to get through 10-20.
What happens sometimes is that I get a review for an item about to be burned and I get it wrong (the reading or the meaning). The other half of the test for that word doesn’t come up within the next 10 reviews. A few hours later I come back to do reviews and I might see that word again or maybe not. Often I don’t actually get both sides of that word until I can do a bigger chunk later in the day.
Even though I got it wrong earlier in the day, I am usually only just slightly off and I do remember the other half of the test (reading or meaning), so I end up getting it “correct” since I was reminded of the half I had forgotten earlier in the day. So I get a burn but it feels like a cheat
This is why I call it a false burn, but it is starting to happen to me these days. I wish when it comes to a burn WK would immediately lower rank of any word you get either the meaning or reading wrong, and not wait for the other half to be tested.
