I'm creating an app to teach foreign language. If the user gets the question wrong, should it repeat (if so, how many times) or come back later (ie shuffle back into the deck)?

Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Do you assume a limited number of question per session? When and how often will things shuffled back into the deck appear? – Tommi Brander Feb 16 '18 at 15:08
  • Can you please edit your question to make it clear that you are not looking for personal opinions but factual arguments, possibly even evidence? – AModHasNoName Feb 16 '18 at 19:41

Actually this depends on the system requirements. However, why don't you just adjust the system so that allows the learner to choose if they want to shuffle or repeat. You can go further by also add an option to show the answer. But in language learning coming back to the information later on regular intervals provides continuous activation to the responsible neurons which helps with the information retention.
