Effective Learning Techniques

Improvement after a practice test

This experiment compared students who did a simple practice test after learning some material with those who did no practice test. No other study was done.

4 Study Approaches Compared

This test compared four study approaches:

  1. Studied the material once using their normal methods (rereading, highlighting, summarising)
  2. Studied the material 4 times using their normal methods
  3. Making a concept map
  4. Read the text once and then tried to recall as much as they could

It also compared the results across both simple fact retrieval and more complex inference (understanding) making.
