Learning to write Japanese kanji is an essential part of learning Japanese, but many new learners find it difficult. The focus of this research was to determine the correct time to provide corrective feedback to people who are learning how to write Japanese kanji. To do this, we developed an app that is able to recognize Japanese kanji that is handwritten onto an iPad screen and check for errors such as wrong stroke order. The app would then display feedback for the user instructing them on how to improve. Previous research has achieved success in developing similar systems, but this project is unique because the research question involves the timing of corrective feedback. In particular, we were looking at whether immediate or delayed corrective feedback results in better learning
