I feel like a restart button on the course challenges would help a lot. There have been multiple times during those long tests where I accidentally fail multiple questions in a row. Then all I think for the rest of the test is how much my mastery will decrease. This creates more failed questions, more increased anxiety and ends in a catastrophic domino effect. This is especially helpful during longer tests where there are a lot of questions. Also when I review a topic I haven't covered in a long time I find myself constantly getting incorrect questions, and then ending up with my mastery percentage dropping a lot which makes me very sad.
I think this is a good idea because it not only makes doing tests less stressful (knowing that if you mess up you can always retry without the fear of losing mastery) and makes it more competitive. I hope someone out there also has this problem so more people benefit from this new addition if it were to happen. Thanks for reading and taking my idea into consideration!
