Characteristics of the Memorization Process

Memorization Speed

This is the average time spent on memorizing one information element (creation of one connection). If you memorized 40 numbers in 4 minutes, your memorization speed equals 6 seconds per one two-digit number memorized as one image.

Remembering (anamnesis) Speed

This is the average speed of remembering information. If you could reproduce 40 numbers in 1 minute, your remembering (anamnesis) speed is 1.5 seconds per number. The memorized information can be remembered very quickly, much faster than it is memorized.

Memorization Quality

This characteristic reflects the amount of correct answers you give immediately after memorization. If you could remember 90 numbers out of 100, your memorization quality is equal to 90%.

Memorization Volume

This is the amount of information that you could memorize at one take, without breaks. For example, if you memorized 60 numbers with three attempts, your memorization volume equals 20. Memorization volume is similar to push-ups. Obviously, only the number of push-ups done in one set has any significance, not the sum of all the push-ups you do during a day.

Memorization Reliability

This is the number of correct answers that you give after a considerable period of time post-memorization for example, 2 months.

Memorization reliability reflects your ability to store information in the brain. If you reproduce all the foreign words you need to know at a foreign language exam, you will get an A. However, this will not matter, as you will probably forget all that you knew at the exam within a couple of days, unless you know how to affix the new information.
