Ahhh, ok. So I don't need to set any parameters up because Pleco does it for me. And I can see the results in 'statistics'. My Pleco fog is starting to lift!
Using SRS only, I can learn 70 new words per week. The number has gone up to 200 a few times when I went berserk on learning. But 70 per week is the average for the last 3 years.
.With “Score-based” subject selection
Enable Test reading / Test writing / Test listening with the three boxes on this screen, and configure them via Configure fields (which lets you choose the “Show” and “Prompt for” settings for each type). During a test, Pleco will rotate between the test types you’ve enabled for that test - if all three are selected, the first card is tested on the “reading” fields, the next card on “writing,” and so on.
From my experience the default score-based testing settings (testing a different 'direction' every 200 score points) in combination with the default score adjustments using the 'rate recall quality from 1-6' option have nearly that behaviour: rating a card as 'remembered perfectly' pushes it to the next higher test direction category, whereas failing to know a newly tested direction pushes it down to the previous one, so that test directions actually alternate most of the time between consecutive reviews. The advantage over Pleco's built-in alternating mode is that the score-based approach remembers which two directions you get stuck in between: it might switch back and forth between you succeeding at knowing the pronunciation based on the meaning and you failing to write the character based on the meaning, but it will never waste your time going back to asking you to read the character (assuming that's your easiest test direction, it is for me).I have, but (as far as I understand it), score based testing means that in the beginning you only study in one direction, then after the score increases a bit, only in another, then after the scores increases a bit more, only in yet another, eventually just asking you in one particular direction. That's not what I want, I want Pleco to keep asking me in all directions (with picking a direction randomly a reasonable -- I hope -- time/thoroughness compromise).
