The aim of this bachelor’s thesis was to create automated tests for session-based course “Sissejuhatus andmebaasidesse”, that is taught in the University of Tartu. As a result, tests, that can beExpand


Retrieval-Based Learning: An Episodic Context Account
This chapter proposes an episodic context account of retrieval-based learning, which explains retrieval practice in terms of context reinstatement, context updating, and restriction of the search set. Expand
Retrieval-Based Learning: Positive Effects of Retrieval Practice in Elementary School Children
Although a range of individual differences in reading comprehension and processing speed were observed among these children, the benefits of retrieval practice were independent of these factors. Expand
Toward an episodic context account of retrieval-based learning: dissociating retrieval practice and elaboration.
Analyses of correct recall, intrusions, response times, and temporal clustering dissociate retrieval practice from elaboration, supporting the episodic context account. Expand
The Role of Episodic Context in Retrieval Practice Effects
The episodic context account of retrieval-based learning proposes that retrieval enhances subsequent retention because people must think back to and reinstate a prior learning context. ThreeExpand
Does Providing Prompts During Retrieval Practice Improve Learning
Summary The purpose of this investigation was to identify ways to prompt retrieval practice to make recall even more effective at producing meaningful learning. In two experiments, subjects readExpand
Retrieval attempts enhance learning, but retrieval success (versus failure) does not matter.
It appears that retrieval attempts promote learning but retrieval success per se does not, and a 2-stage framework to explain the benefits of retrieval is proposed. Expand
Optimizing retrieval as a learning event: When and why expanding retrieval practice enhances long-term retention
The results suggest that the extent to which learners benefit from expanding retrieval practice depends on the degree to which the to-belearned information is vulnerable to forgetting. Expand
Is expanding retrieval a superior method for learning text materials?
Overall it was found that repeated testing enhanced retention more than did taking a single test, testing with feedback produced better retention than testing without feedback, but most importantly there were no differences between expanding and equally spaced schedules of retrieval practice. Expand
Retrieval Mode Distinguishes the Testing Effect from the Generation Effect.
A series of four experiments examined the effects of generation vs. retrieval practice on subsequent retention. Subjects were first exposed to a list of target words. Then the subjects were shown theExpand
Expanding retrieval practice: An effective aid to preschool children's learning
Expanding retrieval practice provides an effective method to improve learning by young children by comparing recall following massed elaborative study with either expanding retrieval practice or expanding re-presentation. Expand
