Getting Started

This guide will explain how to start studying using the Skritter website. 

After signing in to Skritter, you'll be brought to the main Dashboard. The dashboard is where you can access the Study button (to begin studying), view how many items are due for review, see your daily study streak, your all-time words and characters learned stats, and the lists you are actively studying.

For a more comprehensive guide on the dashboard, please refer to:  Dashboard Overview

How to Begin Studying

In order to start studying, you need to have at least one list selected to add words from. All of the words and characters you study on Skritter come from lists, whether it's a pre-made list or one that you create yourself. 

1. To begin, click the "Browse Lists" button on the Dashboard

2. After clicking the "Browse Lists" button, you'll be brought to the Browse Lists page.  Once you decide which list you would like to study, press the green (+) icon to add it to your queue

For a comprehensive guide on list creation, please refer to:  Creating and Managing Lists

3. After adding the list(s) to your queue, navigate back to the Dashboard by pressing the "Skritter" logo in the upper left-hand corner

4. Now that you've returned to the Dashboard, you can see the list(s) you've added at the bottom of the screen. To begin studying, click the green "Study" button. You can also click the "Study" button on the top black navigation bar to directly go to the study page from anywhere on the website. 

Studying a Single List

You can choose a specific list to study, even if you have selected multiple lists in your queue. To do this, click on the list that you want to study.  This will load a single list study session, where only words from the list you've chosen will be added and reviewed.
