Memrise Learning Statistics Full Breakdown

Memrise Learning Statistics: Full Breakdown

As part of your Memrise experience, your dashboard will contain a full breakdown of your process.

It will be under the tab called “Learning Statistics” on the website platform.

From there you can see how you are doing weekly, daily, and monthly.

To open up the Memrise learning statistics head to your own courses, and find the course you wish to check.

You will see an arrow next to each course, click on the one you want more information from.

A sidebar will pop up with information on where you are in any leaderboards you are connected to.

If you aren’t connected to any, you’ll simply see your name and the points you have received for that course.

Underneath this information, you see a button that says “See Your Learning Stats”. Click that button for full access to your Learning Statistics and additional features.

Now you’ve found your stats, we can talk more about them.

What Are My Memrise Learning Statistics

Your Memrise Learning Statistics will contain information about all of your courses both individually and collectively.

There will be a pie chart telling you which course you are spending the most time on, which one you are learning the most from, and how much of your day you spend learning.

In the more detailed areas of the Memrise learning statistics, you’ll see information on the words you have in your long-term memory (based on how many times you have used it successfully in the course) and the types of words or languages you seem to be finding easiest.

There will also be basic data such as your longest winning streak, the time of day you find the most effective, and how accurately you are answering the questions. (If you’re interested in whether Memrise is free, click here!)

Learning History Board

On the Learning History board, you’ll see your progress for the last year (365 days).

The green boxes show you if you completed learning events on that day, and the darker the color goes the more events you completed.

If you don’t complete any learning activities, the box is gray.

Learning Time

Your learning time counts how long you have spent on the language learning app or website.

It only holds this information for 30 days, but you can compare this data from previous days, weeks, or even by 24 hours.

This information can help you learn when you study the most and how well those study days are doing. (See also ‘Learning Korean: Tips For Using Memrise!’)

For super simple readings, the information is color coded and broken into easy-to-view boxes.

You can learn more about each time frame by opening up the drop-down option.

Learning Insights

The Learning Insights graph tells you the time of day you are learning the most.

It marks when you are getting your answers mostly correct or mostly incorrect.

This graph can tell you if working in the evening results in more failures, or if your mid-day lunch break is when you are most pumped to learn.

Your insights will contain only the time of day you have been learning, not the actual date.

They keep hold of the last 10,000 tests you’ve completed – adding and deleting the information as you complete more tests.

All of this information is designed to help you figure out what the best method for learning is, for you.

If you put a lot of time into learning on a Saturday but you’re failing most of your tests around that time, then instead of forcing Saturday into being your study day use the data to find a more appropriate time.

Where Can I Find My Learning Statistics

The Memrise learning statistics data isn’t available on any apps at the moment.

This means you need to log in via the website and search for your information there.

We explained in our introduction how to navigate your learning data.

The information on users is updated automatically, so you don’t need to do anything to gather the data.

Group Leaderboard Statistics

There are two types of Group Leaderboard Statistics, the friendship board and the teacher/student board. (For information on the Memrise Pro version, click here.)

All Group information is only available on the website and not on the apps.

Friendship Groups

friendship groups

The Friendship Group is a title we have given to this group type. In reality, it will simply be called “group” on the website.

When the group is created there would have been an option for “group for friends” or “teacher’s group”.

In the group for friends, the information you’ll see is reduced.

The first leaderboard contains all of the points that the members of the group have collected. This allows you to compare against other groups.

The second leaderboard contains everyone’s individual points. You can see this information based on the week, month, and since the group started.

Scrolling through the boards you can see information based on each specific course being worked on by the group.

Teacher/Student Group

The teacher version has the same information as the standard/friendship version but with extra details.

If you click on the “stats” button, you’ll see the student’s learning history.

It essentially has the same information as an individual’s Learning Statistics breakdown but is available for the teacher to see.

This information includes:

  • Time Studying
  • Number of words in a student’s Long Term Memory
  • Number of Difficult Words
  • Total progress of the course – in percentage form
  • Total points for the last 30 days.

The number of difficult words refers to the number of words the student is having consistent difficulties with.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t tell you what those words are, nor does it count past 20. When a student has difficult words, ask them to send you the list so you can help them in class.

You may notice that multiple students are struggling with the same word or word type.

How To Improve My Statistics

If your Memrise learning statistics are low, that means you are struggling with one or all of the following:

  • Managing Your Time
  • Constantly Struggling With Certain Words
  • Getting To The Next Level

Managing Your Time

If your Memrise learning statistics are mostly showing red marks, then it suggests that you haven’t found a consistent working time. If this works for you, and you’re still learning overall, then you can ignore these statistics. 

If not, use the information to see where the green marks are, then restrict your study time to these hours/days.

Constantly Struggling With Certain Words

If you keep getting caught out on specific words, then you may need additional help.

You’re most likely struggling with grasping the construction of that word, so instead of relying solely on Memrise, try picking up a translation book or YouTube video. A change of learning style could be all you need.

Getting To The Next Step

If you’ve reached a stalemate, then you may need help keeping motivated or expanding.

We suggest joining a group so you can talk about ideas and struggles with people who understand what you’re going through.

Memrise Badges And Points

Your badge can be found under your username. It tells you and your leaderboard buddies what your Memrise level is.

The points threshold doubles for each level. For example, level 2 is 500 points, level 3 is 1,000, and level 4 is 2,000. For the full list, click here.

Final Thoughts

Learning Statistics is a helpful tool to gauge where you are succeeding and where you are failing, however, the levels are the best indication of how you are doing in your official courses or user-created content.
