Title: Potent but Piecewise Learning: The Specific Memory Benefits of Retrieval Practice
Abstract: Learning researchers have established that taking a test on to-be-remembered information, more formally known as retrieval practice, typically enhances long-term memory for that information relative to other techniques such as reading or restudy.  However, far less is known about whether that memory enhancement generalizes (i.e., transfers) beyond directly tested information. In this talk I will present new research which addresses that issue for the case of cued recall tests involving a range of stimuli (e.g., triple associate words, history facts, and scientific concepts). Throughout these studies, a characteristic pattern emerges: performing retrieval practice often results in memory benefits that are specific to tested stimulus‑response combinations. This finding informs the development of an emerging theoretical framework on retrieval practice and transfer, addresses ongoing research into the mechanistic basis for retrieval practice effects, and has implications for the optimization of educational practice.
