Russell Hall, Russell Special Collections Building Auditorium

Henry L. Roediger, III, the James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor at Washington University, will report on a program of research about the benefits of retrieval practice through quizzing as an aid to learning. Testing or quizzing is a practice usually considered only to measure what a student knows, but experimental research shows that retrieving information helps to stabilize the knowledge and make it easier to recall on future attempts. This presentation will provide evidence advancing from laboratory experiments to field experiments in classrooms showing how frequent quizzing can improve educational outcomes. Co-sponsored by the UGA Department of Psychology.
