False memories—either remembering events that never happened, or remembering them quite differently from the way they happened—have recently captured the attention of both psychologists and the
The Power of Testing Memory: Basic Research and Implications for Educational Practice
This article selectively review laboratory studies that reveal the power of testing in improving retention and then turns to studies that demonstrate the basic effects in educational settings, including the related concepts of dynamic testing and formative assessment.
Test-Enhanced Learning
Investigation of the testing effect with educationally relevant materials and whether testing facilitates learning only because tests offer an opportunity to restudy material concluded that testing is a powerful means of improving learning, not just assessing it.

Factors that determine false recall: A multiple regression analysis
The results fit well within the theoretical framework postulating that both semantic activation of the critical item and strategic monitoring processes influence the probability of false recall and false recognition in this paradigm.
Research Methods in Psychology
Comprehensive coverage of computer usage throughout the book illustrates the importance of computers and their use at every stage of the process from generation, collection, and quantitative analysis to gathering research information.
The Critical Importance of Retrieval for Learning
The results demonstrate the critical role of retrieval practice in consolidating learning and show that even university students seem unaware of this fact.
