Thread: Length of exercises

Back to the Forum


Posted: 2012-08-12 09:03
Has anyone else noticed that the exercises are shorter in duration, time wise, than they are set to?

I'm learning at 50/3, which works for me, and a 5 minute lesson is over in ~2 minutes. I wonder if the duration isn't set by the number of characters rather than the actual elapsed time.

It's a well-known and oft-discussed feature of this site, and gets worse when there's a big difference between character and effective speeds. Just take the length as arbitrary, and ignore the fact that it mentions "minutes". At any given speed setting for a particular lesson, 5 will be about 5 times as long as 1, and that's as far as you can take it...

After a little tweaking, exercise duration should now be quite accurate to the setting, both for high ratios of Speed/Eff. Speed and also for groups that contain mostly long characters (e. g. figures).
