Studying and Reviewing Scripture Memory Verses
The Learning Process
Memory verses move between the boxes “New”, “Due”, and “Known”.
You can change the sort order of a box by tapping on the active tab .
|Actions:||1. Study||2. Commit||3. Review
|4. Recall||5. Review
- Study new verses.
- Committing a verse moves it to box “Due”.
- Review passages of verses.
- Successfully recalling a verse moves it to box “Known”.
- Review references of randomly selected verses.
After adding a verse, it can be studied using different kinds of games. To start studying, tap on the verse and on thestudy symbol.
Obfuscate: Hide some words and try to recite the verse by filling in the missing words from your memory. Tap on an obfuscated word in order to reveal it.
Puzzle: Build the verse by tapping on the correct word.
Line Up: Display empty lines or first letters by tapping on the icon on the left (on the bottom bar). Advance by tapping on (+word) or (+line). Try to recite the word or line before you reveal it.
Typing: Build the verse by typing the first letter of each word.
After committing the verse to memory swipe the flashcard to the right in order to move it to the “Due” list. From now on, the verse takes part in the reviewing process.
Select the box “Due”. If you would like to change the order of the verses, tap on “Due” again. There are 3 ways to start a review:
Starts a review of multiple flashcards.
Starts a review of a single flashcard.
Opens the flashcard on the passage side directly.
When reference and topic are displayed, recite the verse from memory, then flip the card to check if you were correct. If you prefer reciting the verse line by line (for editing line breaks see Adding and Editing Verses), tap the icon in the bottom right corner for each line.
If you need a little help to get started, press long on the card to get a hint. (You can skip a card by swiping it down.)
If you remembered the verse correctly, swipe it to the right in order to move it to the “Known” box. This will increase the verse’s level by one (until the review limit in the account’s settings is reached). If it was not quite correct, swipe it to the left. This will reset the verse’s level to 0. This might sound a bit shocking, but it is very important for the review frequency of the verse. Verses with low levels show up for review more often. This helps to reinforce your memory of a verse before it gets forgotten. Spaced Repetition ensures that you repeat challenging passages frequently, but also don’t forget familiar passages.
Spaced RepetitionMemorisation is most efficient when the brain recalls the learned items in increasing intervals. Remember Me uses an exponential algorithm to calculate the intervals (similar to Pimsleur). If your account’s review frequency is set to “Normal”, you will review your verses after 1, 2, 4, 8, 16… days. The other component of the algorithm is resetting a verse’s level to 0 after a failed review (similar to Leitner). This makes sure that difficult passages are reviewed more often than easy ones.
If you want to review the references of the passages reviewed today only, press on the label “Reviewed today”, before you start. Select the tab “Known”, set its sort order to “Random”, and tap on the button with the filled flashcard icon at the bottom.
Remember Me shuffles the cards and presents their passages. Try to recite the reference from memory, and flip the card by tapping it to check if you are correct. If you are, swipe the card to the right. If you aren’t, swipe it to the left. The app will get the card back to you during the review session until you remember it.
You can skip a card by swiping it down. Unlike reviewing passages, the app does not keep track of your reviewing progress. This mode of reviewing is more like a quiz you should take once in a while to refresh your knowledge of the references.
- Number of Inverse Flashcards: Maxmimum number of flashcards per reference review session.
- Include Reference in Learning: Include the reference in studying and reviewing verses.
- Review Frequency: How often the verses will show up for review.
- Review Limit: Maximum number of days until to the next review. Limits indirectly the number of levels that can be achieved.
