Spaced Repetition Algorithm Simulator

Below is an example of how you can configure your spaced repetition algorithm whilst learning courses at Memory. If this seems complex, fear not: the default settings work for great most users.

Suited towards regular learning speed and review of new terms

Rapid repetition of questions
Try this if you're in a hurry and want to keep repeating the same questions more often. Suitable for quick classroom sessions

Long term learning
(Suited towards long term learning when you are already familiar with the questions and wish to develop and maintain knowledge of questions over a longer period of time)
*This uses settings in the style of SM-2, but it is not precisely the same.

Practice Frequency Multiplier

Adjust the multiplier for practice intervals.

Less often (x4)
Correct answers may not be seen again for weeks
Very Often (/15)
up to multiple times per day

Practice Interval: Days Next Due Limit

Limit the maximum number of days next due for practice intervals.
Each time a question is answered, it is assigned a 'due for practice' time. You can reduce the number of days if you prefer to practice more often.

Example use case: You may wish to practice all questions in a certain level at least once per day - for this, you can set the value to 1.

Example Use case 2: You are a long term learner and are comfortable with your questions, ones you find easy can be set to 365 so you only see them once per year.

e.g. If you specify 4 days, and the system calculates a question as due in 7 days, it will be set to 4.

If set to 4, if the system calculates a question as due in 2 days, it would still be 2.
The default setting is 180 days

180 days maximum
