Problem. The problem to be put to test in this experiment is whether immediate feedback is more effective than delayed feedback in meaningful human learning. The delays of feedback were of one hour, two days, and one week. Materials. The materials used in the investigation included four journal articles designated as A, B, C, and D and tests covering the content. Subjects . The students who constituted the sample were en­ rolled in the course "Human Growth and Learning" in the College of… Expand

Delay of Information Feedback in an Applied Setting: Effects on Initially Learned and Unlearned Items.
Undergraduates (N = 94) enrolled in an educational psychology course read an assigned article of about 3, 700 words. A 30-item multiple-choice test was then administered and followed by one of fourExpand
Delay of Feedback and Retention of Correct and Incorrect Responses.
Sixty-seven fifth graders studied a text followed by an immediate test (T1) consisting of inference, factual retention, and guess questions, and either received feedback after thirty minutes, after aExpand
The Effect of Immediate and Delayed Feedback on the Achievement of Chinese EFL Learners on Reading Comprehension
This study aims to investigate the effect of using two types of feedback (immediate and delayed) in motivating Chinese students to improve English proficiency in the university level. The currentExpand
Toward consilience in the use of task-level feedback to promote learning
Abstract Over the past 50 years, the effects of task-level feedback on learning have been investigated within three relatively isolated research traditions: experimental laboratory research, appliedExpand

AbstractA test of achievement motivation was administered to 260 sixth graders. One month later, students participated in a science reading lesson followed by a multiple-choice test based upon thatExpand

Item-By-Item Feedback and Multiple Choice Test Performance,,
AbstractThe reinforcing and/or informational effects of immediacy of feedback on test performance have been a topic of some debate for several years. In the present research, it was hypothesized thatExpand
An Analysis of the Effect of Immediate Corrective Feedback Administered as a Study Aid to Undergraduate Medical Technology Students
Results suggest that learning was enhanced in the ex­ periaental group when with the control groups, and it is probable that this enhanced learning was due to utilization of the study guide and/or immediate corrective feedback. Expand

Delay of Reinforcement and the Retention of Unfamiliar, Meaningless Material
Recently, Brackbill and Kappy ( 1962 ) and Brackbill, Bravos, and Starr ( in press) have found that delay of reinforcemenc during learning improves rerention. However, in all five of the experimentsExpand
