Project Description

I am in need of an algorithm that I can pass on to my developers for a project I'm starting soon.

It involves a Spaced Repetition System (SRS) and language acquisition.

Basically I need an algorithm that will help people remember new words, phrases, etc at the most optimal rate.

A word will appear, if people know it well, they can hit the "yes" button and it won't be shown again for a while. If they kind of knew it, they hit the "maybe" button and it will be shown again shortly. If they hit "no", the word is repeated very soon after so it sticks in their head.

Similar software programs exist already, but I want an algorithm that is even better, something that adjusts the timing etc to the user's abilities. So it makes recall as efficient as possible.

Here are some useful links to explain more about what I'm talking about:

I'm not ready for coding the application yet, so all I want now is an algorithm that I can pass on to my coders and have them build eventually.
