Try The New Quiz & Flashcard Mastery on Yoyo Chinese!
Master Yoyo Chinese Courses... by the Level
In the Mastery section you can drill - sometimes almost endlessly! - the lesson content found in the practice & quiz activities in our 6 Courses/1,000+ lessons from the Learn section.
So what’s the difference between normal Practice & Quiz and the Mastery section versions of those activities?
In the Mastery section each of your 'decks' contains Quiz questions, Flashcards, etc. from an entire Level of a course, rather than just from one individual lesson like you would normally find in the Learn section.
And because the selection of the Quiz questions, Flashcards, etc. is semi-random each time you use the tool - this provides a new and rewarding challenge: recalling what you've learned from the 30-40 lessons found in each of the 36 Levels found in our 6 Courses.
That’s a lot of content to master! In fact, currently on Yoyo Chinese, in total there are:
- 13,594 Flashcards
- 9,080 Quiz Questions
Mastery Algorithms & the Magic of Memory Science
The Quiz & Flashcards tools each handle their 'Mastery algorithm' differently, but both apply the fundamental principles of something called, "spaced-repetition", or "spaced-repetition systems" - i.e. learning systems that use algorithms which utilize existing research on memory science to help improve long-term memorization. (You can learn more about SRS here.)
Uber-strict adherence to SRS systems isn't something we were interesting pursuing because we feel that the best way to 'memorize' isn't necessarily the best way to 'master' and so instead will continue to monitor, update, and improve our tools and their algorithms with your feedback in order to make the tools as best for each individual students as possible.
