Study Screen Overview

This guide will explain what the study screen is and how to use it.

The study screen is where all the action is -- it's where you practice words, whether they are new or pending review. In addition to practicing/reviewing, you can add new words manually, change Quick Settings, and view more detailed information directly from the study screen.


The canvas is where you answer the various prompt types. This is where you trace the strokes on your screen or tap to reveal reading, definition, and tone prompts. Once a prompt is complete, a set of grading buttons will display at the bottom of the canvas.

For a comprehensive guide on grading buttons, please refer to the Grading Buttons Guide.
