Example text

Students read an article on bamboo, after which they were tested. Spitzer manipulated the frequency of testing (students took between one and three tests) and the delay until the initial test (which ranged from immediately after reading the article to 63 days later). , performance on the initial test declined with increasing retention interval, reducing the boost to performance on 20 Roediger et al. subsequent tests. In a similar vein, it has been shown that items that elicit errors on a cued recall test have almost no chance of being recalled correctly at a later time unless feedback is given (Pashler, Cepeda, Wixted, & Rohrer, 2005).

Feedback should be incorporated into all educational testing. SCHEDULES FOR TESTING The great bulk of the literature on testing effects shows the benefit of a single initial test relative to either no test or to a reading control condition. The fact 24 Roediger et al. 4 Results from Butler, Karpicke, and Roediger (2007). On the final test, delayed feedback (FB) led to substantially better performance than immediate feedback, while the standard feedback condition and the answer-until-correct (AUC) feedback condition resulted in similar performance.

Suboptimal learning strategies. For example, JOLs are often negatively correlated with study times during learning, meaning that students spend more time studying items that they feel are difficult and that they still need to master (Son & Metcalfe, 2000; although see Metcalfe & Kornell [2003] for conditions that produce an exception to this generalization). Not only is testing a better strategy, but sometimes substantial increases in study time are not accompanied by equivalent increases in performance, an outcome termed the “labor-in-vain” effect (Nelson & Leonesio, 1988).
