Build amazing personal vocabularies according to your needs and preference with the WordPress Personal Dictionary plugin. Each user will see his/her personalized dashboard. Let’s go into full detail as to what the plugin offers you.



4. Personal Dictionary (Front-End)

Groups: As a user, create groups by clicking on the + sign first. After clicking on it, type in the group name, that is, the topic of the vocabulary (e.g.  Psychology, Law, and so forth). Then, click on the Save button. Afterward, create words belonging to that group. For instance, you can add words like legislation, judge, case in the group named Law. To create words within a group, click on the group name, then on the Add your words button. Now, you can write the word with its translation or meaning. You can add as many words as you wish.  Also, you can edit the group name and delete the group anytime.

Most importantly, you can move from the Word input to the Translation one and Save it by just pressing the Enter Key on your keyboard.

Games: There are two games available at present: Find the word and Find the translation. The games are based on the groups and words you have created. For both games, select a group or several groups and decide how many words should be included. Game words must be more than 4. After finishing the game, you can see your result. Click on the Start Again button to try once more.
You can follow your results for each group and each word on progress bars. If the progress bar shows one hundred percent for a particular word, it means you have learned it. In this case, it will not appear in the games anymore. But if you, for example, think you still have to practice it, you can Reset your result and start from the very beginning. As soon as you reset, the progress bar will show zero percent for that word.

Import (Pro): If you plan on having a rich dictionary, there is an easy and time-saving way to have it. Fill an excel file with the words and corresponding translations you need to learn, then import the file in your dictionary. After creating your excel file, click on the Choose File button, select the file, and hit Import Now. You can either open a new group for those words or include them in an existing group. In the first case, the group will take the name of the excel file.

 


5. Personal Dictionary (Dashboard)

5.1 Home

Follow your students’ activity and observe how much they have come so far.

5.1.1 Shortcode: Copy the given shortcode ([ayspd_userpage]) and paste it into a post or page.

5.1.2 Words in total: See the total count of words that your students have created. For instance, if one of your students has created 10 words, another student has created 11 words, and a third one 15 words, the number of words that you’ll see will be 36 in total.

5.1.3 Groups in total: The same logic works here. You will see the total count of groups created by your students.

5.1.4 Users count: Observe how many users have created groups in your dictionary. It will count from the moment a user creates his/her first group.

5.1.5 Games played in total: See how many times users have played revision games in total.

 

5.2 Reports (Pro)

5.2.2 Words count per day: Follow the growth or decrease of word count during a week via a line chart. For example, the blue line will go up if more words are created in the next few days.

5.2.3 Users count per day: This graph works with the same logic again via a line chart. The blue line will show whether the number of users has grown or vice versa.

5.3 Leaderboard (Pro)

As a teacher, closely observe the results of your students.

The leaderboard shows the scores of students from the best to the worst. On the leaderboard, you will see the results with categories, such as Position (1st, 2nd, etc.), Name (the user’s name), Email (the user’s email), Words count (how many words the user has created so far), and so on. You can change the order based on any of those values by just click on them.

You can decide how many entries need to be visible on the page, beginning from 10 and ending to 100. Then, you can see the entries not included on that particular page by hitting the Previous or Next buttons. You can also search for the entry you need. Type in the username, email, or anything to find it among dozens or hundreds of entries.

 

5.4 Settings

Customizing the general settings and style settings of your dictionary is at your disposal. 

General Settings

5.4.1 Learnt points: Specify the points for a word to be considered learned. It works together with the Right answer points and Wrong answer points options. See how it works right below.

5.4.2 Right answer points: Specify the points for each right answer. It will be added to the learned points during the calculation. For example, if you set the right answer points as 2 and the learned points as 10, the user needs to choose the right option for that word 5 times(2x5=10). After five successful attempts, the system will consider that particular word as learned by the user.

5.4.3 Wrong answer points: Specify the points for each wrong answer. It will be deducted from the learned points during the calculation. For example, if you set the wrong answer points as 0.25, two wrong answers will take 0.5 points away from the total points.

Styles

5.4.4 Main color: Choose the main color of your dictionary on the color picker. Also, set the opacity level of the color if you wish. The secondary color of your dictionary will be a tint of the main color. In case you Clear the color, it will take the default value, that is, blue.

5.4.5 Text color: Choose the color of the text that includes the group names, words and their translations, button texts, and so on. You can set the opacity level of the color as well. In case you Clear the color, it will take the default value, that is, black.

5.4.6 Custom CSS: Enter your own CSS code on the given field.
