What is a filter and how does it work?
With a filter you can create a stack or a collection from the total number of words in a language.
When you add a new language to Glossa, no filter exists and the flashcards as well as the tests use all the words, you have provided. If the number of words is low, this may be okay and the addition of a filter may not required.
For larger sets of words, however, creating a filter is worth the small effort. A filter can be defined using the following criteria:
|Name||identifies the filter|
|Direction||determines whether the words are presented or testes from foreign to native language, vice versa or mixed.r|
|Book||defines the book, the words should come from.|
|Page||tells Glossa from which pages of the fore mentioned book the words are to be chosen (specifying upper and lower limits).|
|Letters||determines the initial letters of the words (upper and lower limit).|
|Order||sets the order in which the cards are to be sorted.|
|Level||may be used to restrict the level of knowledge of the vocabulary|
|Tasks per test||defines the number of tasks per test|
The number of filters per language is not limited.
