Why Rawson et al., (2013) – Successive relearning

Successive Relearning – Successive Relearning* – During initial learning, engaging in retrieval practice with restudy until all items have been learned to criterion (with RememberMore that is three consecutive i.e., correctly recalled responses.) Then, in one or more subsequent sessions, students engage in additional retrieval practice with restudy until all items are successfully relearned (i.e.,…

“…more frequent, lower-stakes quizzes.” We have a idea.

You would think that in your attempts to harness the “testing effect” you could quite reasonably fall victim to the impairment of “test anxiety,” effects. The answer is relatively simple. More frequent, lower stakes quizzes retrieval. That – and control the spacing. Otherwise know as Successive Relearning. Silah et al., (2021) assess “how the quantity and…

Extending the ‘testing effect’ to self-regulated learning

RememberMore (RM) is in development because or two things. One the powerful impact of retrieval and need to optimise the spacing the account for numerous learning cognitive biases that impede learning and retention. For just over a year now, we have been focusing on two tenets, optimising the direct benefits of Successive Relearning (retrieval practice…

Why Successive Relearning? Capturing the climate shift? (Part 2)

In fact, it would be fair to say that I am merely piggie backing his reflections and insights. As per “Why Successive Relearning? Socrates was right!…

Why Successive Relearning? Socrates was right! (Part 1)

It has been three weeks since Ben I started collaborating with RememberMore. It has been a fascinating, professionally rewarding, mainly digital, tennis conversation exchange, regarding the introduction of clasroom.remembermore.app and then RememberMore app to his classes. Conversations tend to bookend day, with the occasional highlights, successes or Eureka moments casually posted to posthumously return to…

Yet more evidence for Retrieval Practice

Does retrieval practice improve student learning in school and classroom settings? Based on our literature review, our response for researchers and educators is an unequivocal “yes.” Agarwal et al., (2021) More meta evidence for Retrieval Practice. A second meta analysis in a week. Critically, Agarwal et al., (2021) compared classroom studies only. After screening 2000…
