I'm working on a Psychology course and using Anki for Flashcards. http://ankisrs.net/
There's lots of definitions for this course. For example:
FRONT: Attribution Process
BACK: We try to keep consistent perceptions of people; believing a person's behavior comes from inside of them, their personality , which we think we know. But, most behavior is affected by our situations, the context.
Ok. So far so good. Easy to test, front and back or back to front.
However, what I need is to add
a statement, like:
"Can you help me understand your thinking here?"
This statement should, when shown to me, make me recall the name of the concept. And / or the definition. Perhaps even both.
So, this seems to be like a three-sided card. (A somewhat elusive thing, like Bigfoot - much discussed. Seldom seen?) I'm wondering how I could pull this off from a single template. So that I'm tested on both the Front and the back, but then also prompted by the third note, this Statement.
It seems to me that, as I understand things so far, the only way it could be done would be with a different template, generating more cards? If that's true here’s my thinking: somehow that seems inefficient. Is there any way I can use all three of these notes in one, efficiently? I'm open to more templates, if that's the only way it could be pulled off. But, since there are 500+ terms like this, I'm looking for a way of not having to enter the information all over again. This is why, ideally, I'm seeing a single template that can handle the question in all three ways
What do you think?
