I’m not sure if this has been specifically talked about, I didn’t see anything topics addressing this, but I was wondering if people had any thoughts about how the system of separated meanings and readings would effect SRS and the progression. Now, let me explain what exactly I mean.
Sometimes I come across a word or a kanji, and I think “hmm I can’t quite remember the meaning” and then I realize “oh wait, it wants the reading” so I answer the reading. Now, whether or not I get the reading correct, I now know the reading, and often times that will trigger in my brain the answer to the meaning. (or vice versa, the meaning gives away the reading).
If the meaning or reading is giving away the other answer, I’m able to continue progression on that item when I feel as though I didn’t completely remember it. And, in a situation where the one I don’t quite remember is asked first, then I wouldn’t be progressing on that item. So sometimes if I didn’t know it right away without any clues, I feel like I should be getting that item incorrect. But I don’t really know. Do you guys think that this impacts the SRS where if I level up the SRS, then next time around I might not actually remember it without that additional clue?
Maybe this doesn’t matter, I don’t know, it was just a thought I had. Every time I only remember an answer because of the clue from the other half, I wonder if I really should be getting it correct.
