The importance of constructive comprehension processes in learning from tests
Testing the limits of testing effects using completion tests
The results suggest that scope or type of processing required during retrieval practice is likely a critical factor in whether testing will have specific or robust benefits.
Retrieval (sometimes) enhances learning: Performance pressure reduces the benefits of retrieval practice
Summary Academic testing has received substantial support as a useful educational activity with robust retention benefits, given that tests can promote retrieval practice. However, testing can…

These interactions are illustrated by demonstrating situations in which greater spatial ability leads to problematic performance by eliminating the prediction task, which encouraged attempts to integrate the displays that related positively to performance.
Biology Textbook Graphics and Their Impact on Expectations of Understanding
ABSTRACT Graphics presented alongside expository science texts can have a number of positive effects for instruction, including facilitating engagement, arousing interest, and improving…
Administering Spatial and Cognitive Instruments In-class and On-line: Are These Equivalent?
Standardized, well-established paper-and-pencil tests, which measure spatial abilities or which measure reasoning abilities, have long been found to be predictive of success in the STEM (science,…
Strategy selection for cognitive skill acquisition depends on task demands and working memory capacity
Reducing reliance on inaccurate information
Encouraging the retrieval of accurate knowledge during reading can reduce the influence of misinformation, according to the contributions of episodic traces and prior knowledge on learning, as to the conditions that support successful comprehension.
