Testing the Effectiveness of Retrieval-Based Learning in Naturalistic School Settings
While the learning benefits of retrieval activities have been clearly demonstrated in laboratory settings, evidence on their usefulness in naturalistic school settings is still scant. The goal of the
Retrieval-Based Learning: Positive Effects of Retrieval Practice in Elementary School Children
TLDR
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.
Examining the Effectiveness of Retrieval-based Learning Strategies in First Generation College Students
TLDR
The purpose of the present research is to examine whether standard retrieval-based learning strategies, such as free recall, will help improve meaningful learning in college students who may not be as strong academically.
A Classroom Study on the Relationship Between Student Achievement and Retrieval-Enhanced Learning
Retrieval practice has been shown to produce powerful learning gains in laboratory experiments but has seldom been explored in classrooms as a means of enhancing students’ learning of their
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 read
Retrieval Practice Promotes Pictorial Learning in Children Aged Six to Seven Years
TLDR
The results indicate that retrieval with feedback promotes memory more effectively than elaboration, and the advantage of retrieval without feedback may increase at longer intervals.
Retrieval-Based Learning in Children
Testing oneself with flash cards, using a clicker to respond to a teacher’s questions, and teaching another student are all effective ways to learn information. These learning strategies work, in
Retrieval practice can improve classroom review despite low practice test performance
Review is often more effective when it involves deliberate memory retrieval. However, this advantage may depend on a high rate of retrieval success; students who are less capable with the material
A (Preliminary) Recipe for Obtaining a Testing Effect in Preschool Children: Two Critical Ingredients
TLDR
The present findings suggest that cued-recall practice and test formats, as well as immediate feedback during practice, are crucial ingredients for obtaining the testing effect in preschoolers.

Learning with retrieval-based concept mapping.
Students typically create concept maps while they view the material they are trying to learn. In these circumstances, concept mapping serves as an elaborative study activity—students are not required
The Effect of Retrieval Practice in Primary School Vocabulary Learning
Summary The testing effect refers to the finding that retrieval practice leads to better long-term retention than additional study of course material. In the present study, we examined whether this
Retrieval Practice Produces More Learning than Elaborative Studying with Concept Mapping
The study found that students using the retrievalpractice technique scored significantly higher than students using the study-once, repeated-study, and concept-mapping techniques. The average percent
Retrieval Practice Produces More Learning than Elaborative Studying with Concept Mapping
TLDR
It is shown that practicing retrieval produces greater gains in meaningful learning than elaborative studying with concept mapping, and this support the theory that retrieval practice enhances learning by retrieval-specific mechanisms rather than by elaborative study processes.
Is expanding retrieval a superior method for learning text materials?
TLDR
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.
Improving Students’ Learning With Effective Learning Techniques
TLDR
This monograph discusses 10 learning techniques that benefit learners of different ages and abilities and have been shown to boost students’ performance across many criterion tasks and even in educational contexts.
Retrieval-Based Learning
TLDR
The retrieval-based learning perspective outlined here is grounded in the fact that all expressions of knowledge involve retrieval and depend on the retrieval cues available in a given context.
Memorial consequences of testing school-aged children
TLDR
To examine the memorial consequences of testing school-aged children, second graders took a multiple-choice general knowledge test and later answered a series of short answer questions, some of which corresponded to questions on the earliermultiple-choice test.
