Dialog Cards: Proficiency Levels

The explanation follows a personal communication with Oliver Tacke, who programmed this part of the H5P content type „Dialog Cards“. This article replaces a previous test page, where I presumed a wrong model for the repetition mode in H5P Dialog Cards. To use the notion of „repetitions“ is misleading. It is better to talk about proficiency levels as it is done in this article.

Proficiency Levels and Start Assumptions

In both examples, I suppose a proficiency level of 3 with only five cards.The explanation in this article follows a personal communication with Oliver Tacke, who programmed this part of the H5P content type „Dialog Cards“. This article replaces a previous test page, where I presumed a wrong model for the repetition mode in H5P Dialog Cards. To use the notion of „repetitions“ is misleading. It is better to talk about proficiency levels as it is done in this article.

First Example

In the first example all cards in all rounds are answered correctly.

Round # Comments
==1== C1 C2 C3 C4 C5 Card names
PL1 PL = Proficiency Level: All cards start at PL1.
PL2 empty at start
PL3 Chosen max. proficiency level = 3; empty at start
Show cards All cards at PL1 will always presented randomly to learners –
Answer All cards answered correctly
==2== As all cards are answered correctly: All cards move from PL1 to PL2
PL1 empty
PL2 Important: A card in a certain PL higher than 1 does not necessarily mean that it will be presented! PL present 1/1, PL2 only ½, PL3 only ⅓ etc.
PL3 PL3 still empty
Show cards All cards presented in a random order
Answer All cards answered correctly
==3== As all cards are answered correctly: All cards move from Pl2 to PL3. Important: PL2 becomes PL1! As always all cards in PL1 will be presented therefore all cards from PL2 (= now PL1!) will be presented!
PL1 empty
PL2 empty
PL3 All cards have reached the chosen level of proficiency. Therefore stop! This explains the discrepancy that chosen PL3 has only two repetitions.

Second Example

The second example is slightly more complicated: It supposes a proficiency level of 3 again with 5 cards. But in the first round, card 1 and card 2 are answered wrongly. In the second round, card 1 is still not answered correctly..

Round # Comments
==1== C 1 C 2 C 3 C 4 C 5 Card names
PL1 PL = Proficiency Level: All cards start at PL 1.
PL2 empty at start
PL3 Chosen max. proficiency level = 3; empty at start
Show cards All five cards from PL1 presented randomly to learners.
Answer C1, C2 wrong. Other cards answered correctly
==2== Only cards answered correctly go to next PL
PL1 C1, C2 remain at PL1
PL2 C3, C4, C5 answered correctly and rise to next PL
PL3 PL3 still empty
Show cards Taken 1/1 (100%) from PL1 = C1 and C2. ½ (50%) from PL2, rounded up = two cards randomly chosen, e.g., C3 and C5. This explains my mentioned "erratic behavior".
Answer C1 still wrong, C4 not presented.
==3== Round 3 starts with a combination of all three PLs.
PL 1 C1 twice answered wrongly therefore still at PL1.
PL 2 C2 answered correctly therefore rises from PL1 to PL2. C4 was not presented, therefore still at PL2.
PL 3 C3, C5 twice in a row answered correctly. They rise therefore from PL2 to PL3. This is the max PL3. Therefore: C3 and C5 will not shown anymore!
Show cares All cards at PL1 are shown. Only C1 is still at PL1. PL2 shows 50%. PL2 has two cards: C2 and C4. One of these two cards will be shown randomly, e.g. C4.
Answer C1 rises from PL1 to PL2; C4 from PL2 to PL3 and will not be shown anymore.
==4== In round 4 PL1 is empty. We have only C1 and C2, both at PL2. But PL2 is now the first level, meaning aLL cards from the the first level will be presented! Assuming we will answer both cards correctly, then Dialog Cards is finished and will stop.
