> The stacked bars show the total cards in my “deck,” broken down by rating. As you can see, I was adding 20-80 cards every day for twenty days, about a chapter a day, and when I finished the book, the last ten days were just spent reviewing cards. You can see at the end that according to my own target of 4 or better, I had learned well over 500 new German words by the end of the month. And I knew these words outside the context of these drills, recognized many of them in other settings, and even managed to use a few in everyday conversation.

I had to record that data every day in Excel and make it myself. You can get “snapshot” charts in the app, but not time-oriented ones, which are a better motivator.

The current statistics plugin can show you cards added per day, and it
can show you grade breakdown over the entire deck, but it can't show
you anything similar to that PNG with the growth of your deck and the
growth of 4/5 cards over time.
