WK seems to believe I am far more accurate than I deserve. I will explain what I mean, and give details of what I do on the site, below. I couldn’t find anything relevant, but sorry if it’s a common question / answer.
For starters, this is ultimately based on what displays for me in WK Stats. Here is a screenshot:
While that level of accuracy would be awesome, there is z e r o % chance that I really am that accurate. I know that WK Stats is not WK, though, so I always just assumed there was an issue with my stats transferring. However, today, I went to my review page on the WK website for the first time in a while (more on that below), and it summarized my last review session as 1,000-some correct, and only 22 wrong. Now… I mean, no. Couldn’t be me.
Details of Usage:
-I use no userscripts on my own via a browser. (Not being a weird stickler, I just don’t understand how to use them and don’t care to figure it out).
-I do use Tsurukame app for iOS a lot. The app has userscripts built in.
-On Tsurukame, I will frequently manipulate the number of lessons displayed, and I use the app to reorganize my reviews (i.e. show me the ones from the current level first).
-I almost never use any other feature for “cheating,” such as “Ask Me Again Later.” For typos, like if I accidentally hit Enter when I’m still typing an answer and it gets marked wrong, I will use the feature. But that is not very common, and it simply causes the question to reappear in reviews. As far as I can tell, if you treat those typos like they never happened, my accuracy % is still correct. When I finish a session, it is 88-92% usually. Way lower on bad sessions. Occasionally higher if it’s just a batch of new words I remember from a few hours ago.
Is any of that commonly a trigger for messed up accuracy?
The reason I noticed it’s not limited to WK Stats is because reviews on Tsurukame are “saved up” and displayed on your Review Summary screen the next time you do reviews on the WK site. (Example: At 8 am, I do 20 reviews normally, on the WK site. I finish. It tells me I got 0 wrong, 20 right. After that, at 9 am, I use Tsurukame to do 20 reviews–5 wrong, 15 right. At 10 am, I use Tsurukame again for 20 reviews–0 wrong, 20 right. Later, I get back on the WK website and go to do some reviews. The Reviews Summary screen (where you go to click “Start Session”) tells me that my last session was 40 reviews–5 wrong, 35 right. Basically, it takes all the Tsurukame reviews I’ve done since the last time I used the website and shows me the combined total.)
So when I used Tsurukame exclusively for a while, and loaded the Reviews Summary today, it showed me that I got 22 wrong, in the same period that I got over 1,000 correct. That is simply… impossible. I have been so bad during the last 2 levels.
Here is some more detail if you’re intrigued / inclined:
-From January-May 2020, I covered about a level per week, and did maintain extremely high accuracy (upper 90’s).
-Then, I reset from Level 22 or 23 back to 20.
-From roughly June through September 2020, I was very busy at work and took a break.
-Ever since I re-started in October with daily reviews and lessons, I am proceeding more carefully (slowly) through lessons, but my accuracy is way lower. When I complete a review session, I feel good if it’s 90%.
-I have now done about as many levels at this new, lower accuracy as I did at the old one, yet my stats have remained very high.
Sorry for length, appreciate your thoughts.
