Your Japanese Mastery level is a score from 1 to 70 which measures your current knowledge of Japanese, covering kanji, vocabulary, grammar and overall language experience. To check your level, visit your Dashboard. For more information, read the how-to guide.
As you use Kanshudo, the system tracks your 'mastery' of every kanji, word and grammar point separately. Your mastery is a score from 0 to 4, where 0 means 'no knowledge', and 4 means 'completely mastered'. You can view your current mastery of an item by visiting its details page - you will see a number like this near the top of the page: . The system will update your mastery automatically as you study, but you can also edit your score for an item manually by clicking the score and selecting an option in the popup.
Kanshudo can automatically set your mastery scores for items you already know. For details, read the Quick Start guide.

Your grammar mastery score is calculated from your mastery of individual grammar points. You can improve your mastery of individual grammar points in several ways:
Your kanji mastery score is calculated from your mastery of individual kanji, so anything that improves your mastery of kanji will improve your score. For example:
Your kanji mastery will also be 'inferred' when you take a Kanji Quiz, and from other activities such as Boost. Inferred masteries will never reach 4, however - to reach 4, you need to study flashcards or take multiple Challenges over time.
For more information, see our detailed guide How to use the Kanji Wheel to guide your Japanese studies.
Most word-related activities on Kanshudo will improve your word mastery, including Word Quiz, flashcards based on words, and games such as Word Match. Your word mastery is based partly on the actual words you know, and partly on knowledge we can infer - for example, if you reach a high level in the Word Quiz, the odds are good that you know more basic words well, and we can infer that. So if you already have quite a bit of word knowledge, the best way to tell the system that would be to do the Quiz, or study flashcards just below or around the level you are comfortable with.

'mymastery' search keyword
In kanji search, word search and grammar search, you can use the mymastery keyword to identify kanji, words or grammar points for which you have a specific mastery score. You can use this to find items you need to study, or items you already know and want to review. The syntax is mymastery:N where N is a number from 0 (no mastery) to 4 (fully mastered). The mymastery keyword can be combined with ufn (usefulness) searches to narrow the range. For example, this search will find all kanji of usefulness 1 that you have fully mastered: ufn:1 mymastery:4.
