questions

It takes repetition to commit information to long term memory. Some answers we memorize after only one exposure, and others we struggle with, then many repetitions are required. Instead of endless rote learning, Leitner's system suggests repeating the questions at increasing intervals, just when the information is on the verge of being forgotten. The smart repetition system algorithm also avoids situations in which certain randomly selected questions are shown too often and others are not shown at all. The frequency of being presented with each question depends only on the user's answers.

Learn the tough questions easily

The secret to mastering difficult questions is simple — Blitztest analyzes your answers and prompts you to pay more attention to the difficult parts. The more often you get a particular word or example wrong, the more often the system asks that particular question.

Memorize for good

The Blitztest will ask you to repeat the material at increasing intervals, just when the information is on the verge of being forgotten. This algorithm ensures a smooth transfer of knowledge into long-term memory.

Practice discipline and structure

The only thing needed from you to successfully master the educational materials of Leitner's system is regular practice. Exercise daily or at least once every 2-3 days, and watch performance indicators show your progress.

Work out according to your individual program

Blitztest simulator questions are broken down into multiple objectives for Russian language, math, and geography. Don't waste time on questions you already know. Choose the goals you care about and get to work on them.

Leitner system algorithm

The system consists of several virtual boxes with numbers from 1 to 5. The first box contains absolutely all the question cards that have not been touched before. For example, for a goal of 55 questions, the distribution of the boxes at the beginning of the study is as follows:

1
55
2
3
4
5

If a person answers a question from the first box correctly, the card goes to the second box, the questions from which are repeated no sooner than 20 hours later. If, after this time, the person answers the card from the second box correctly again, it goes into the third box, the questions from which are repeated in three days.

Correctly solved cards from the third box are sent to the fourth box, the questions from which the system will ask you to repeat in 7 days. If the answers are correct after this period, the questions from the fourth box are sent to the fifth — the box of studied questions. In the case of an error, incorrectly solved questions from any box, even the penultimate one, are sent back to the first box. Thus, by the time all the cards go to the fifth box, and the goal is considered learned, the user has given four consecutive correct answers to each question.

When a person takes a test for the first time, they get questions from the first box. If a person has been tested before, they get questions from the other boxes first, the time for repeating which has already come up.
