New feature: statistics on items due with prediction of future trend

Would be good to see a new graph in the website for the number of items due over time. Ideally there would be a trend line going forward showing the likely number of items due over time, perhaps based on the last month’s study pattern, or continuous study of x hours per day. This could take into account the user’s average recall rate and other factors which make this hard to calculate over time. If adding items this could be included or excluded according to user’s request.

I don’t think there’s an easy way to do this calculation at the moment, and it would help answer questions like what to do with a big review pile that pop up from time to time.

Thanks for your suggestion. Skritter can currently calculate out five days in advance on the study page of the website based on some of the metrics you’ve talked about. Unfortunately, this entire process is VERY server intensive and hard to calculate properly if users are actively studying.

Big piles of reviews generally come from inconsistence study patters like spending two hours on Skritter one day and then not coming back for a week. It’s unlikely that we’ll try and tackle stats on future trends for users anytime soon. With that being said, we are going to be adding some cool new statistics (and features) that should help keep us all on track with daily study habits.

Stay tuned!

It can actually do 8 weeks out I think, you need to press on the five day prediction to get that. It takes a long time to do though, several minutes. Look forward to seeing the new statistics.
