Comments:

  1. Items are added to the final drill not only during standard repetitions when you grade an element below Good (4). Operations such as Remember (Ctrl+M), Remember Cloze, and Add to drill (Shift+Ctrl+D) will also extend the final drill queue
  2. Some fields of the statistics window can be edited. For example: Measured FI, Total time, Rep count, etc. To edit and entry, click it, type the new value and press Enter. If the entry cannot modify SuperMemo will warn. For example: Retention entry cannot be modified
  3. See Survey 1994 and Survey 1999 for some interesting notes about the speed of learning reached with SuperMemo

Question:
I have noticed in the Statistics that the number of elements memorized increases even when I enter Fail when answering incorrectly. For instance, in the collection of US States Capitals, it was showing 100% memorized when I was still getting many of them wrong
Answer:
Parameter Memorized indicates the number of elements in the learning process; not the number of elements you are able to recall correctly. If you make regular repetitions in the long run (i.e. over weeks and months), the number of elements you will be able to recall will equal Memorized*Retention
