Capitalizing on the Testing Effect to Enhance Learning in Kinesiology CoursesPresented at the annual American College of Sports Medicine meeting (2015)
The “testing effect” shows that learning is enhanced by the act of recalling information after exposure. The testing effect is among the most robust findings in cognitive science and dozens of studies have found that testing-based learning strategies can enhance learning more effectively than more commonly-used strategies such as reading (only). Nevertheless, the evidence indicates that many educators and students remain unaware of the learning benefits of testing. The purpose of this session is to review the literature pertaining to the testing effect and to provide examples as to how the strategy can be incorporated into the classroom.
