This Sunday I will get my first items to enlightened … And I was wondering how to best approach it… Shall I keep repeating them, or leave them completely be until they show up in the review again. So I can really test myself whether I actually remember them.
Do you use any other memorization programs?
I don’t use very many, but I hear that you can put things there to review. But I think it’s up to you. Wanikani generally assumes you can remember it by then, but most times, at least for me, that’s not the case, and it’s normal. If you want to test yourself, I think maybe something like that would work. (Although admittedly I don’t have as much experience with those kinds of programs as I’d like so if anyone has any ideas that would be great.)
I would leave the Enlightened items be. This is the best way to test your long-term memory. Failing a burn review might feel sad at first, but it means you really didn’t remember the item long-term and you actually need that extra effort of again getting it to master and enlightened. If you do self-study, you’ll never get that test of your memory.
you create a new preset with the new button in the items tab and call it enlightened.
you turn on the srs level filter and select enlightened.
you set the maximum quiz size to 20 or whatever the number is.
This last step will cause Self Study to pickup 20 random enlightened items and quiz you on them. Every session different random items will be picked.
I wouldn’t worry about long term memory. Scientific research has found that the more often you have seen an item the better the retention.
The key is not to study just before the review. I suggest you install the additional filters script and turn on the time until review filter. This will make sure items close to the review date won’t be quizzed on.
Can’t speak for iOS, but I can speak for Android. If someone wants to install scripts in a mobile browser, the Kiwi browser on Android offers the ability to use add-ins, including Tamper Monkey. Which includes being able to add scripts to a mobile device browser.
The cramped phone screen can make some things, like the review script, a bit wonky to use, but otherwise all the scripts work exactly the same as expected.
And I second the Self Study Quiz. I recommend @anon70282159 to read up on how it is used, as it isn’t totally intuitive, but it is easy to figure out with some playing. And once you understand it, sorting reviews by their SRS level is something you can create a default quiz for. Works great!
