Hello! I’m not one to really make post honestly but I need some help/clarification. So I have been on WaniKani for a few months now, and when I hit level 11 I had a lot going on and I thought that I wasn’t performing as well as I would like to with current review cycles. Therefore, I stopped picking up new lessons to improve my performance overall, at least that was the idea.
However, once I stopped doing new lessons my performance didn’t really improve, while doing the reviews before stopping lessons I would average about 88% (referring to the percentage that appears in the top right corner). I also would appreciate if someone could explain to me how this percentage is calculated, I’m not really too sure how it works so I’d really appreciate it. But anyhow at the end of the reviews when you get the review summary my answered correctly percentage is usually about an average of 75% to 80%.
I thought that if I stopped doing lessons I would naturally improve at both of these, nothing wild but just a bit better and then I could pick up lessons again and try to have a more balance relationship with lessons and reviews. But I essentially ended up getting about the same results, or even worse on some occasions. I was wondering if there’s some reason that I’m just missing completely of why this happens to be the case. It’s alright if there isn’t any particular reason but I’d also appreciate some tips or advice on how to improve reviewing, or any techniques that I could employ while reviewing. I’m slowly starting to pick up lessons again but I would like just be sure I’m not missing anything important.
Thanks in advance.
