Flashcard with three-pile method

Upon completion of the selection process, the Flashcard will be presented within a flip card, allowing for interactivity via the use of a mouse. To begin, simply select any of the three buttons located below the flip card. It is important to note that the current version of the program utilizes the the three-pile method.

In brief, the three-pile method entails progressing through the entire stack of Flashcards, testing oneself as one proceeds. Flashcards that are answered correctly are subsequently sorted into the YES pile (Green button), while those that are answered incorrectly are sorted into the NO pile (Red button). Flashcards that elicit hesitancy or doubt are placed in the MAYBE pile (Amber button). In a subsequent stage, the non-YES Flashcards are reassessed until all the MAYBE/NO Flashcards have been successfully relocated to the YES pile.

For an in-depth analysis and additional background information on the three-pile method, readers are encouraged to refer to the following article.
