WordDive recognizes several different answer levels, which the system uses to determine how well you know the study item you are practicing. In addition, it recognizes previous repetitions, time since the repetitions and your general learning history.

Icon Answer Explanation
Fully Correct
+ Exactly right
+ Full "points"
The study item is stored exactly right in your short term memory. Great! You have achieved at least the Known level.
If necessary, the item will be practiced some more until it is in your long term memory and reaches the Permanent level.
Almost Correct
+ Small mistake, e.g. qué/que (accent mark) or Tuesday/tuesday (capital letter)
+ Almost full "points"
You probably know this already, but need to be a bit more precise. Some more practice will make it just right and leave the fully correct spelling in your long term memory.
A Permanent status will stay, but to reach it, at least one Fully Correct answer is needed. You may reach the Known or Permanent level depending on your previous practice.
Correct by Listening
+ Answer was fully or almost correct after listening
+ Some "points"
The answer comes at least partially from your short term memory and can't be used to determine whether it is already in your long term memory.
The study item will be repeated some more to strengthen the connection between the picture, the word and your memory. Your skills will increase even if the level does not change. If you like, you can listen to the item several times before answering.
Good Try
+ Answer was mostly correct, or
+ Answer fits the situation but was not the one we were looking for
+ A few "points".
You have the right idea of the word in your mind, it just did not come out perfectly yet. The answer is written again immediately so that the last thing you remember will be the correct form.
Your skills will increase slightly, but you won't reach a new level. Possible level loss depends on your learning history.
Incorrect
+ Empty Answer field or none of the above
+ No "points"
You have the right idea, but either answered with a related word or your answer did not come out perfectly yet. The answer is written again immediately so that the last thing you remember will be correct.
Your skills will increase slightly, but you won't reach a new level. Possible level loss depends on your learning history.
