Newbie: Grading items during repetitions.
A very trivial question for many, but I’ve received a couple of email asking me how do I grade an item during repetitions.
I you read supermemo’s site you’ll probably get even more lost. A friend of mine is using this way of answering questions.
Bright, Good, Pass, Fail, Bad, Null
This seems a great way to deal about how to grade the questions, with time I think it doesn’t really matter most, but in the beginning its helpful to know how to grade items in order to be consistent with such grading.
Responding about how I grade items.
Bright = Piece of cake!
Good = I know this
Pass = I think is … and you get a correct response
Fail = I think is .. and you get a bad response
Bad = I don’t remember the answer
Null = I don’t remember have seen the question before
However: [Easy,Fine,Barely,Almost,Fail,Null] seems so self explanatory that I would even change the text on the buttons. You can use that by using the translation
If you are using sm2006 you could copy and modified a file named “Trimmed.tra” on:
Then edited with any text editor. This file is used for translation of the user interface in to several languages, unfortunately not all dialogs can be translated.
After doing such changes and saving the modified “trimmed.tra” (I used GRADING.tra) in the save folder and original file. open up your supermemo, hit ctr+alt+O (supememo options dialog), go to language tab, and set “Localization grading:” to GRADING.
