Tests incorporated in the classroom will enhance the learning experience of your students. This study reported that after 20 minutes students who simply studied the material had already forgotten 40%.
Can you imagine the results after two weeks, a month, a year?
That’s right, more than 90% is lost.
By implementing tests into the learning process, you can slow this regression down, tremendously.
Here’s how it works:
To realize you are not fully remembering a concept, your brain has to make the mistake first hand.
By taking a quiz, you can actually see where your errors lie. Your brain then recognizes the mistake and updates the information.
