Why can I not rate newly made questions?
Newly made questions are going straight to final drill without giving me the chance to rate their recall? confused
This behavior is by design. On entry to the learning process, all items are treated identically and no judgment is made on their difficulty or your recall level. You will rate your memory after some time, usually a few days.
When you add new items, it is hard to say how much you learn in the process. You can use the final drill to make sure your recall on day zero is ok. The first true test will come after a few days.
Newer SuperMemos do not rely on the pending queue (in case you read some older tests).
