Studying with Learn mode

Quizlet Learn — available on the Quizlet website, iOS and Android apps — takes the guesswork out of studying by creating a personalized study plan based on your familiarity with the set.

Getting started

 

Learn will quiz you with different types of questions including flashcards, multiple choice and written responses. As you begin to answer questions correctly more consistently, Learn will advance from easier questions (multiple choice) to harder ones (written).

To customize your Learn session, open the Options menu.

From there, you can select which side you'd like to be prompted with, choose to study only your starred terms, turn audio on and off, turn on flexible grading, and select the types of questions you'd like to see.

 

For multiple choice questions, select an answer and Quizlet will tell you if it was right or wrong. For flashcard questions, select Got it for terms you know and select Study again for terms you don't. To move to the next question, press any key to continue.

For written questions, type in an answer and press Enter or select Answer. Quizlet will tell you if it was right or wrong. If you're not sure of an answer, you can select Don't know? to view the correct answer and copy it before moving on to the next question.


Mastering terms and tracking progress


Learn will track your progress as you review. To finish a round of Learn, you will need to correctly answer each question twice. When you answer a question correctly once, it will be labeled as Familiar and given a check mark. When you answer a question correctly two times, Learn will label it as Mastered and give it two green check marks.

After each round, you'll see all the terms grouped by level of mastery — Familiar or Mastered.

Select the mastery level buttons at the top of the round results to see which terms are in each group. Select Continue to keep studying.


FAQs
 

Can I study sets with diagrams in Learn?

Yes, you can use diagram sets to study on Learn. To get started, open a diagram set and start a Learn session. You will have the option to answer multiple choice or written questions. For multiple choice questions, you will see the term or definition and will be given different location options to select from the diagram. For written questions, you will be presented with the location on the diagram and will be asked to type the correct term.

 

Why do I keep getting the same terms again?

Learn asks you the same question multiple times until you have thoroughly mastered the term. You can follow the progress of terms through different levels of mastery in the progress bar. Typically, you'll have to answer a written question correctly twice to master a term.

 

How do you pick which side of my set to show?

By default, we’ll prompt you to write answers in the definition language of your set first — as that’s typically the content you are looking to learn. As you progress through a study session and master your definitions, you’ll gradually start to see prompts to enter terms as answers for more of a challenge. This also helps ensure that you know your terms and definitions equally well. For most written questions, you’ll be prompted to type the shorter half of your term/definition pair.
