… war mir als Begriff bislang unbekannt, aber das dahinter stehende Konzept ist mir sehr vertraut:
You might ask students questions during class, give quizzes and exams, and/or provide homework as a way to “practice” what was learned – these are all examples of what we call retrieval practice. The big difference, however, is that retrieval should be used as a learning strategy, not an assessment tool. In fact, research demonstrates that retrieval is a more potent learning strategy than other techniques commonly used in classrooms, such as lecturing, re-reading, or taking notes. So, instead of asking students to retrieve information only during assessments, encourage retrieval during learning to improve students’ understanding and retention of classroom material.
