Find me on:

We've been assigning you a fixed number of questions to review each day. This has allowed us to accurately calibrate the system by learning how you are using the new experience. Today, we're ready to release a planned update to our algorithm that will even better maximize the efficiency of your studying going forward.

Now, your number of questions will fluctuate each day based on your total number of highest priority questions, meaning those that you're at the greatest risk of forgetting. The more high priority questions you have, the more we'll assign you, and vice versa. For many of you, this will actually mean fewer questions per day. For all of you, this will mean having the industry's most efficient adaptive learning platform by your side.

To see this in your own account, just login and check out the Prioritization tab:

If you want, you can read more about how we determine high priority questions. You can also now get a visualization of your entire stack on the Prioritization tab, as well as set a minimum number of daily questions in your Settings.
