A test of the testing effect for long-term learning and educational practice

Supervisor: Dr Philip Beaman

School: School of Psychology & Clinical Language Science
Department: Psychology

The testing or retrieval practice effect is a well-known finding that study followed by test improves long-term memory for the studied material more than study followed by a further study session (although short-term memory is the same for both). This finding applies to verbatim, declarative memory, but the effect on long-term learning of skills and procedures is unknown and this project will examine the testing effect for both declarative memory and procedural learning.
