I decided to sit down and do my reviews after dinner. Well, as it turns out, doing all your lessons at once and then dealing with a whole bunch of reviews at once is not the best idea. Who knew. Share your soulcrushing experiences with WaniKani so i can feel like im not alone here.
I had an 89% review this morning, which is lower than I normally get. Worst was one of the items was 指定する which I put the reading for as してい instead of していする. Was probably trying to go through them too fast…
I wonder if maybe your memory replaces what you learned with what you are learning when you do lessons, and is, therefore, making it harder to remember what you’ve learned.
Lower than 50% is common for me if I do like 80 lessons at once and I don’t put enough time into comprehending the mnemonics.
I always do my lessons at once and can say that the first review after learning them is usually 40-60%. Nothing to worry though, I will get them correct the next time it pops up as that’s the purpose of srs.
I’ve got 13 different critical condition words… Some as low as 43%! Woo!
~Side Note: I need someone to port the self-study userscript to a website… Workplace is so constricting… >_<
This is not the self-study userscript, but if all you want to do is cram items you just got wrong, BishBashBosh is great
Got a 0% today - was only a single vocab but hey ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
That’s the quickest way to the grave. Don’t do all available lessons at once (you’ll thank me later). Set up daily limit of 10-20 new lessons. Much more manageable in a long run.
it’s ok ;-; i’ve done it many many many many many many many many many many x100 times
Yes! A cram function site is exactly what I am looking for. Having it tied back to API is nice too!
My overall accuracy is about 88% but I still occasionally have a review in the 50% range. It happens, and you can still succeed at WK if it happens to you.
When I sat down to catch up on 3000 reviews after a several month hiatus I was scoring in the 30% range.
With that said I actually do try to get all my lessons in at once and has worked out quite well for me.
Thanks, sometimes viewing posts makes me think I’m the only one who doesn’t get 100% every time. I don’t think I’m dumb so thanks for being on my team.
I think the worst I did on an overall review was in the low 60% range BUT I have an embarrassing amount of kanji that individually are 30-50% because I get them wrong every. single. time. Some just don’t stick. My action plan is to look at them individually and figure out why I can’t recall them – is it the meaning mnemonic? Is it the readings? I’ll try coming up with a different mnemonic or way of remembering it. Sometimes the Wanikani explanation just isn’t good enough for me.
My favourite is when you just have one odd item to review, and you get it wrong.
I tend to press enter right after finishing the input for the review, without checking for errors. It’s a problem because my typing accuracy is not as high as my impatient brain thinks it is. Sometimes the algorithm forgives you, but when it’s more than two letters wrong, you’re screwed.
For example, not too long ago I inputted something like ‘wkrid’ instead of ‘world’. I looked at the monitor as I was about to press enter and realized my mistake, but it was too late, my finger was already decided on pressing that button.
Then the screen turned red.
And I cried :’(
I just got a 46%. It just happens from time to time.
