Two experiments with college students investigated the effectiveness of the 3R (read-recite-review) strategy for learning from educational texts. The 3R strategy was compared with rereading and note-taking study strategies using free-recall, multiple-choice, and short-answer inference tests immediately after study and after a 1-week delay. In Experiments 1 and 2, 3R improved immediate and delayed free recall of fact-based passages, relative to the rereading and note-taking strategies. In…

A comparison of study strategies for passages: rereading, answering questions, and generating questions.
TLDR
It is shown that generating questions led to no improvement over answering comprehension questions, but that both of these tasks were more beneficial than rereading, and although it is a viable alternative to answering questions in the absence of materials, it is less time-efficient.
Is Testing a More Effective Learning Strategy Than Note-Taking?
TLDR
The findings indicate that—in the long run—testing is a powerful learning tool both in isolation and in combination with note-taking.
The Effects of the E-Book System with the Reading Guidance and the Annotation Map on the Reading Performance of College Students
TLDR
An e-book reading system with an integrated reading guidance module and an annotation map is developed and an experiment for examining the effect of this system on reading, reviewing, navigational performance, and reader behavior is conducted.
The JOIs of text comprehension: Supplementing retrieval practice to enhance inference performance.
TLDR
The findings suggest that making metacomprehension judgments may not be a neutral event; instead, making JOIs in concert with retrieval practice can influence people's subsequent study behavior, which in turn can have a positive impact on inference performance.
“Read the Text, As If!” The Reading Retention Strategy
TLDR
The results of the study indicate that when the RRS was employed students recalled more information on essay and short answer questions than when the strategy was not implemented.

TLDR
The 3R strategy can be used as an effective approach to guide children's reading with e-books and can provide support with regard to Chinese characters and phonetic information in order to aid children's memorization of the story, thus promoting both phonological awareness and reading comprehension.
A Case Study of Using Test-Enhanced Learning as a Formative Assessment in High School Mathematics
Retrieving information from memory can—under many circumstances—strengthen one’s memory of the retrieved information itself. The strategic use of retrieval to enhance memory and help long-term
Recognition and recall performance both benefit from the production effect with content-specific information
Two experiments assessed how reading aloud versus reading silently would benefit recognition and recall performance of content-specific vocabulary (i.e., the production effect). Participants studied

Generalizing test-enhanced learning from the laboratory to the classroom
TLDR
Three experiments that extend the testing effect of brief articles, lectures, and materials in a college course to educationally relevant materials demonstrated a robust testing effect and revealed that an initial short-answer test produced greater gains on a final test than did an initial multiple-choice test.
The Limited Benefits of Rereading Educational Texts.
Note-taking, individual differences, and memory for lecture information.
Two experiments were performed to examine (a) the encoding function of note-taking and (b) processing differences between successful and less successful students in lecture situations. In the first
The Critical Importance of Retrieval for Learning
TLDR
The results demonstrate the critical role of retrieval practice in consolidating learning and show that even university students seem unaware of this fact.
