That is correct. For a note value equal to a quarter note or
longer, one slash means 8th-notes, two slashes mean 16th-notes,
etc. But for a note value shorter than a quarter note (ie. one
that already has one or more flags or beams, each slash halves the
undotted duration of the printed note. This is the standard
notational convention.

Hope this helps.
