More Points

Asked 10 years ago

Is it possible to get all the points for the quizs? And if so, how? Also I had 600 and something points yesterday and today i earned 400 something points and im at 894 now... Did i lose points or someting?!

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

I think some points are "taken back" as they are added back as drills you must do. If you do your drills, you'll get your points back and more. I think this decision was made to encourage people to maintain studying.

Yep!  lolicatgirls is right.  The points "expire".  But if you succeed in answering the drill again, you regain the point (and an extra one!).  If you fail to answer the drill correctly, you'll lose the point until you answer it correctly.  Here's how it goes:


  1. Answer a drill correctly, get 1 point
  2. The drill expires in approximately 8 hours and is scheduled for you to answer.  The point you had is lost.
  3. You answer the drill correctly again, but this time you get 2 points.  And it will wait maybe a day until asking you again.
  4. 1 - 4 continues and the points you get for the drill continue to increase each time you answer correctly.
  5. Ruh oh!  You answered incorrectly.  You lose ALL points associated with that drill
  6. You immediately answer the drill correctly again, so you start back at one point.

We decided this to make it so users are encouraged to continue their drills to help retain the information.  But each time you answer a drill, it will take longer for you to see it asked of you again.  It's a way for us to continue to help you with things you need help remembering while rewarding you for answering it correctly each time you see it.
